No, I'm sorry, every time that you, or one of your fellow
implementors, finds it necessary to resort to sarcasm in
order to make what might otherwise be a valid point, all
you achieve is to bring the good name of TeX Live, and
your own reputation(s), into disrepute.  I for one find
your sarcasm highly offensive, and cannot understand
how a person such as yourself, who is friendly, pleasant
and helpful in real life, can find it necessary to
descend to these depths.

Sincerely :
** Phil.
