	I think our security record is much better than most other 
open-source projects, and I think that we have much more open and 
frank discussions between the principal developers and the 
wheels-meet-the-road admins, owners, and moderators than most other 
open-source projects.

	We don't deserve to be treated like this, especially not by the 
likes of you.

	Frankly, I don't care what you think of me.  I care that you are 
willing and able to follow the specified procedures, and if you can't 
(or won't) do that then you don't belong here.

	I think you're stumbling over your own feet.  Maybe you want to 
take them out of your mouth once in a while.
