"Ed" was most impolite for no good reason. "Scroom and the horse
he rode in on," would be a suitable reply for Ed's behavior.

I see nothing wrong with Ed's behavior, for the least George deserved
even more. How can a person make a silly claim of which he has no
facts on and to add to that he attacks us users of the Fedora list in
his insulting comments ie:

If redhat can't control things better than this on their lists, I'm not
sure I want to use fedora.

Why tell all of us this? If he had been asking a question or providing
valuable advice or suggestions then this would all have been a
different case. Frankly I feel insulted by all the nerve of George.

wow guys,
I've been signed up for this list for about a week and I've noticed a
ton of spam coming in now. I guess I should have used a different
address than my main one... I could stand the traffic, (and this is a
high traffic list!) but all the spam, no way.

My foot!
