Look, there is no stupid antipathy around here, nobody cares about it either.
What we do care about is that _YOU_ try to find a bit of information and
contribute code.  Right now the only thing you have contributed is the waste
of time around here with this utterly useless thread.  Our patience is not
infinite, we do expect that you do some work instead of asking for every bit
of information.  This is also a waste of _OUR_ time.  Ask a specific question
and you shall receive an answer or a pointer to the answer, your job is to find
the missing bits.

When you contribute at least a line of code (which you have not yet done), then
I at least will take your words a bit more seriously, but right now you are
just wasting Thomas', Marcus' and all the other developers and users time
with this pointless thread.  This thread is even more useless then the
t-shirt thread which at least had a point.

Now, if you want to go back to your hole, please do, but if you do, shut up and
don't waste our time! If not, please contribute something that is usable.

As one great hacker once said "Thank God for gnus-score and the L key!"
