Can you all =*PLEASE*= stop behaving like 15 year olds?

Obviously nobody is aware just how disgraceful all of this is.  It's a
public place after all and this just serves to scare away contributors.

@Rich: *sigh*  Why you always have to drag technical discussions into
the field of personal insults is beyond me, but I'm starting to believe
that all hope that you might change is futile ...

@Steve: Sticks and stones will break your bones ..  Learn to ignore
insults, it's a tricky skill to learn, but once you master it, it's
invaluable.  Plus it frustrates the flamers if they cannot provoke you.
Also, please try to see through the flames, not everything people tell
you is just zealotry.

@all: Steve is just trying to share his code here, his effort should be
appreciated, don't forget that we don't have an abundance of proprietary
software vendors that try to cooperate with us.
