In a long and slightly rambling post full of nuggets of truth such as this:

- you get into an argument

- you say he is full of sh1t and he bans you ;-).

This does seem to be the way things go, all too often. Here on this list
it has been less obvious than in many other lists, but it has happened
here often enough over the years.

It used to be just Henne would blockade topics, rather than people, but
I do remember "HE of a Million Subscriptions" being banned (along with every
customer of his ISP) some years ago.

I was recently turffed from the OpenBSD list after a private message to
Theo De Raadt about there being no necessity to be such an ass to an occasional
question from a newbie.
(Anyone who dealt wit Theo knows he's been asked to leave
every job he's ever held until he found one he couldn't be kicked out of).

Sadly, I'm starting to see the same behavior here.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
