Please, let's tone down the rhetoric.

It is not helpful to respond with such unfriendly sounding
mail, whether it is "insulting" or simply "strongly worded."
It is certainly not helpful to respond to what comes across
as insulting with something which might itself come across
as insulting.  You end up with escalating bad feelings.

If you absolutely feel the need to blow off steam, please
resort to private E-mail.  Neither Team-Ada nor comp.lang.ada
should be used as forums for anything even remotely
construable as personal battles.

The point of these forums is technical interchange, not
electronic warfare.

Thanks in advance...
