Its mostly a joke though.  There's no reason to ge offended.  He does 
this to his friends most of the time.  Some people though are really 
targeted but he picks on those he likes the most.  He's not serious 
about his comments.  It's like reading the comics.  I do however 
understand how someone can be easily insulted.  You are entitled to your 
opinion.  And I will not mention it again.

However while on the topic :) I think its hillarious.  I can't wait 
until he rips into the Directory project.

Cool that's ~4-5 people that like it so I'll switch over for the last 
time.  I hope :).

That's exactly why I read it; for the creative profanity that is.  It's 
how I expand my English vocabulary to include such colorful words like 
turdburglar and poogem :-).  He just cracks me up to the point where my 
wife comes upstairs to my office and asks if I'm ok.  I would probably 
be sneared at by my wife if she knew about the filth that moved me to 
the point of breaking ribs.
