(This does not target you, but is a response to your suggested response)

No, it's:

1) Insults and off-topic derogatory are not allowed.

That's it. If you're insulted, tough. Take it off-list. If you think
it's totally and unabashedly Nikos's fault, tough. Take it off-list.
If you think Nikos is completely innocent, tough. Take it off-list.

Insults and derogatory are not cool. I thought we were adults. If you
choose to ignore Nikos's posts, fine. If you choose like me to wait
until he asks questions well, fine. Whatever. That's beside the point.

As before. no insults, no derogatory. If you don't get why this is not
allowed, you need to step back.

To put things in perspective, these are the people who have been
insulting on this post:

Mark Lawrence (once, probably without meaning to be insulting)
Antoon Pardon

And here are the people who have reminded them to stop:

Steve Simmons
Steven D'Aprano
Andrew Berg
Walter Hurry
Joshua Landau (me)

So yes, Antoon Pardon and Nikos, please stop. You are not representing
the list. I haven't followed any of the other arguments, true, but you
two in particular are causing a lot of trouble for the rest of us. It
is not hard to avoid making your disagreements public.
