Waa, waa, waa. You have been on *this* list long enough to know the difference.
Yes, we have. Tolerance is expected here. YOU should know.
Tolerance, the usual killer argument.
Tolerance in only one direction? Or why do you not tolerate the netiquette on this list or his point of view.
Like the religious idiots in the U.S. these days essentially crying that being forced to allow others their religious freedom violates _their_ religious freedom.
Tolerance doesn't include tolerance for intolerance. Consideration doesn't include tolerance for inconsideration.
Tolerance means I normally do in fact simply delete the extra mails without saying anything.
But that doesn't go as far allowing the perpetrator(s) to try to claim that they're actually in the right and everyone else should get over it.
That right there is EXACTLY why people should be a bit less "tolerant". Because as Greg just demonstrated, if you don't, even an otherwise pretty knowledgeable and helpful guy like Greg will start to think he's not actually doing anything wrong since not enough, or enough of the right people, tell him otherwise because we're all too good at being "tolerant".
