Gee, doesn't *anyone* pay attention to smileys anymore?

Look at it this way: If someone tried to write an Apache module, and it
kept blowing up, and they really wanted to do it, and they couldn't
get it to work after a day's effort, and spent a lot of time trying to
get it right, do you think it would be appropriate for them to
categorically state that 'Apache sucks' as a result?  *That's* the
sort of point I was trying to make -- gently, in a friendly
way, and not adversarily at all.  That's why I included the smiley.

It didn't sound like you were motivated to succeed; I assumed that,
I was wrong, and I apologise and retract the remark.  All right?

All right, for you it's a waste of time.  I've no problem nor issue
with that.  But other people's opinions of whether it's a waste of
*their* time may differ.
