and it would not make the slightest difference to what happens here.

It isn't the rules that make the list the way it is, it is the 
posters. If Karl and his nemesis were on the Debian list, it would be 
like this list too. I would never deny Karl the right to be Karl, but 
that does not give him the right to post the things he does here.
(In fact if he is a cantankerous old fart, I am entering my grey years 
and heartily looking forward to growing old disgracefully, after being 
shackled my whole life it is time to have some fun. ;))

But that aside, what you say is just that same tired old cry "why 
can't we all just get along?".

Time to face up. The answer is because we are people. This *is* what 
people are like, pathetic, childish, mindless idiots, (capable of 
startling greatness, compassion and warmth). But in the main, we 
bicker and squabble and threaten to take our bat and ball home...
This is what we are like, we can either work with it or continue with 
the denial we are conditioned to wield and continue business as usual.

I would hazard a perhaps in here, that a lot of the heat we are seeing 
would actually be better placed at the real targets and those actions 
being taken at the highest levels that remove our fundamental rights 
and rob us of our resources, the politicians and banksters. I know it 
is this criminality that makes my blood boil.
