To be fair, I'm sure I'm forgetting a few forgettable mails that may have 
contained flames directed at other people. Else I don't think it's 
necessarily that I am paranoid, I'm a likely target because I write a damn 
lot of emails here and because many of them push some peoples' red 
buttons, and that's not even always in the case of careless language, mind

I understand the joke even though it makes assumptions perpendicular to my 
understanding of politics... the left-right spectrum needs be debunked and

The opposition is not unified, it's just present enough to be 
uncomfortable. I was expecting someone to reply to David saying "Pd isn't 
OOP so OOP isn't welcome here", especially given the kind of reactions 
I've received on pd-list and pd-dev in the last month or so.

You missed your shot because I was not suggesting that the opposition was
unified. To me it looked like you hadn't really read the mail that you
were replying to. It seemed like nonsense, and even more so by writing it 
just after my third point, which is a lot harder to construe as paranoid.
