For one start you should have made your role clear after basically
announcing leadership, I just follow this list, here and there when I have
time to read and at the time in the development cycle when things seem most
pertinent, and that was a pertinent line at a pertinent time (and the rest
of your posting behaviour reflected it at the time, understandably).
But that doesn't change the fact that your are the most authoritative figure
on this list, and being quite nasty to every new comer on this list isn't
exactly inviting.

You seem to find that you being a dick to people is a medium to keep away
people who are serious about creating art, like that is some massive
contribution. Admittedly I am ridiculously inept at anything artistic. But
there are surely alot of very artistic people who think "well I can't code,
so I can contribute artistically" then join to the ubuntu art list, feel
your wrath and then keep quiet rather than disrupt your precious order.

I'm just saying Cory "You'll catch alot more Bees with honey than Vinegar"

Now please don't hurt me
