1. I don't see any foul language. Perhaps I'm overlooking something?

2. Considering the offensive nature of the message I was responding to,
I feel I was quite reserved. In fact my response was (thankfully)
written after a personal "timeout".

I beg your pardon, I *did* mention it. What are you seeing as the fist
message in this thread?

I asked for help I got arrogance.  Arrogance doesn't go over well with
me. My apologies.

You keep saying "public mailing lists". Is a "hostile tone" OK on
private ones? ;)

As I mentioned in the message (that's somehow fallen into a black hole
here, yet can be found in it's entirety in the archive[1]) that
*started* this thread my involvement began as a request (bug report) for
a sync from Debian Sid.

I've never used an OS I didn't (dis)like.
