Hi Alan,

It's ok, just highlights the point that some people understand
different things :) I do see your point, and it is very frustrating on
both sides of the table because this kind of problem is a _hard_
problem because it involves people.

Have you seen the support guidelines we put together a little while
ago? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UKTeam/Support_Guidelines
I try to poke people when I see them going against them, but I'm not
on IRC very much these days. Hopefully this will poke more people to
read them and adopt them :)
