Ok, so Cory sends an e-mail to a public mailing list in an "intemperate"
tone. Todd finds this inapproriate, and shares this feeling with Cory
and the rest of us, in a tone this is the diametrically opposite of
intemperate.  And you decide to tell *Todd* off due to his tone, because
Cory has done more work on Ubuntu than him?

Well, as dholbach so nicely put it, if people are regular contributors
to Ubuntu, they should be setting a good example, so if I were to tell
one of Todd or Cory off, it'd most certainly be Cory. I would have done
so, but Todd did it just fine, IMO, and applying your logic, since I've
been a core-dev longer than you, my opinion is better than yours, right?
