Healthy discussion in an email list requires that all parties are first
willing and able to read, before writing. You have clearly demonstrated that
you ar incapable of doing either.

Every list has a charter which is displayed for you before you join. You
obviously ignored that text instead of reading it.

You are not participating in the community, you are merely injecting noise.

The words of Isaac Asimov seem apt here.


“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our
political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means
that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”

Your ignorance is nothing to be proud of. Read the list charters and respect
the community organization, otherwise you deserve no respect in return.
