If accurate, it's very sad. It's also quite common in Open Source  
development. There was a period when that sort of stuff happened with  
GNOME, one of the SuSE forums, and so forth. It's one thing to have a  
flamefest, as a regular feature of Net communications on anything; it's  
another to have posts deleted and such. Where I play moderator in other  
places, I am quite reluctant to do such things. I'd rather give an answer  
to a flame, making it instructive regardless of the issue.
