I want to formally protest against the false accusations made by "Res" 
I also want to protest against the wrong spelling of my name.

If I were interested in whatever Karl F. Larsen writes, I would probably 
have answered the same as "J" in, 
except for the remark about the Ubuntu cabal. TINC - There Is No Cabal.

I agree that the problem was most likely a local SMTP delivery failure 
of transient nature. I would probably have given Karl a link to a page 
with SMTP troubleshooting tips, for example how you can manually test a 
SMTP connection by using telnet on port 25.

I also would like to formally protest against the tone used by all 
participants in this conversation. Yes of course Karl was wrong, but 
only because his basic assumption was wrong. If he had just described 
the problem, without any assumptions, this topic would have been totally 
different. All those nasty comments you people made could drive a weaker 
person into a paranoid persecutory delusion.

To Res: I would appreciate your formal apology, but I seriously doubt 
that you will every do that. It doesn't matter because usually I don't 
read your emails so I wouldn't see it anyway.

Kind regards,
Amedee Van Gasse
(please respect the correct spelling of my name)
