People has different points of view about how sociaty is organized.
This can change with time along the way of ones life, sometimes
not. The only way you can promote ideas you think are best for the
future is through dialog, engaging _all_ different kinds of people
in the conversation.

There is a trend now which has came up thanks to the application
of technology to the most stupid behavior of people in general,
the so called social media. This allows people who doesn't do really
anything for anyone to pretend to others and themselves that they
are some kind of brave justice warriors, but acting in the most
cowardly way, twisting words getting them out of context, making
up _rules_ so they can justify attacks and insults to the next poor
bastard. Yes, the next because there is going to be another one,

Witnessing this on this mailing list makes me sick.

One thing I like of old school computer science mailing list is
that complete different people engage in conversations and work
together no matter what political views these people have. There
is room for some healthy discussion on these matters, and normally
it ends by itself when boundaries are crossed. I've seen this
discussions in other lists, and always -when no child(mental) are
involved- there is an effort to keep a friendly atmosphere at the

I've read the books of Ballesteros. Yes, say the name you coward.
The only thing I can say about them is that they need a revision
to a most correct English. Is not easy when you are not a native
speaker. I can notice it when I read it, but I can make the same
mistakes in this very same mail I'm writing.

Maybe some native speaker could help on this.

"support oppression"
"maybe I have heard secondhand"
"fight against right wing ideas"

You see, I don't know you, either Ballesteros, and maybe I would
agree more with the ideas you could _recite_ over a cup of coffee,
but I'm pretty sure a conversation with Ballesteros (whatever ideas
he has) would be more exiting and productive.

This "Tell me only what I want to hear, or we'll ban you" crap...

I think you are not bipolar, you are just another piece of Mr. Hankey.

This list is becoming a South Park Christmas special...
