Well, just to make EVERYONE mad before they got to my thoughts of such 
posts on this mailinglist, I quoted the full message ,-)

Anyhow. It's MY OPPINION that FLAMING and CROSS FLAMING or trying to 
explain your flaming should be done PRIVATE. I'm sick and tired of those 
public mails to the mailinglist. This is getting as annoying as another 
list I'm on. I don't think this mailinglist was made with the purpose of 
mailing a couple of hundred MUD-Implementors with this kind of stuff.

Therefore I BEG you guy's who think the person mailing a message you find 
unreasonably bumb or ignorant to REPLY PRIVATELY ONLY, and keep it off 
this list. 

Now, I don't want any replys telling me some sort of lame excuse why you 
two actually mailed back and forth of this list, but feel free to 
mailbomb my server if you wish ,-)
