Then please meditate about using a more intelligent way to generate controversy.

Is good to see you clarifying you are speaking for yourself because that’s very different of the "we" word you lightly used and everybody read in your original reply to the news team.

If they are publishing Seaside cases or platform improvments which directly benefit Seaside projects you think is not appropriate? If so you better delete the mail from your inbox because I bet lot of people here would be interested.

Is amazingly sad you are trying to convince people by comparing Sun Microsystems to Squeak. And you made it public. You are an important member of this community and to see this is for me a real pity. A real public shoot in the foot who helps nobody.
