Can't you teach your mailer to behave?
This has been told to you, IIRC, many times.

What a way to start this day! Ladies and gentemen, here we have the live episode of the ranting, maligning,

Again I ask, what "maligning" would you and others be referring to? If I have in any way "maligned" anybody, I demand the opportunity to "un-malign" them.

rants-against-abusive-behaviour-discussions on the cygwin-talk list. Aside from Lionel B., I would have to declare that this thread is again getting to be enjoyable!

CGF *doesn't* need to change. IIRC, cgf says he writes the way he writes because it's fun.

In his latest statement on the topic,, he mentions nothing
about "fun".

Yes, he doesn't. However, in a related posting--in a reply to one of your mails, he says all these is for fun.

"As it turns out, for the most part, the way that I conduct myself provides
me with the results that I want.  [...] Other people who want to change
things but don't have a clear idea about what they want to do and only know
that they are angry because I'm not nice to them, and won't give their
half-formed thoughts the consideration they know they deserve, eventually go
away.  Which is exactly what I want to happen."

Frankly, I'd prefer the "fun" explanation.  Unfortunately, I've been around
long enough that I can believe neither.

I really still can't believe that some take the cygwin meanness very seriously to the point of being concerned about the behaviour of cgf. Really!

The cygwin list has become a list where where the cygwin gurus have set the culture of letting people learn to help themselves first before anything else. That's the reason for the thousands of times when postings are answered with "go to ""; or "goto";, or, with a pointer to the correct list.

Nobody is discussing such posts, not me anyway. Why do you and some others (one other?) believe any of this chronic issue is related to pointing people to web pages? I truly don't follow.

You know why? Because it's fun. :)

And it helps people to help themselves. If you don't understand that, I can't imagine what you can?

Since the rest of your post is based on this erroneous premise, I shall
refrain from further comment.

Great! IMHO, It's best for everyone to stop ranting about cgf's behavior--or style. He's mean. So, what? You care? I don't. If others do, that's their problem. They will be wasting their time caring about his style.
