Yes, but the correct word is "ridiculous".

and needs a rephrasing at least.
And maybe your answer needs this also.

That seems indeed to be the case.  But no more so than quite a few other 
previous posters on this list. No need to get upset.

True, wherever they are.

Now that starts sounding a bit peculiar.
What do you mean by "offshore" ?  Anyone not in the same particular 
country where you presently are ? (because I don't think I am either)
And I thought this was a global Internet forum, dedicated to helping 
Apache Tomcat users worldwide, irrespective of origin, culture, 
nationality, beliefs.  Am I wrong or naive ?

I've been wondering about the same thing reading some posts, but the 
presumed cultural or geographical origin or off-shoreness is not 
well-correlated to the (lack of) quality of the posts.

But the way you write, makes it sound as if you do, because the only 
element you had to categorise this OP as unfair, offshore or whatever 
was his name.

If I go by the names alone, I'd bet that quite a few of the Apache 
Tomcat developers and helpers on this list are not direct descendants of 
the Mayflower crew either.  Your post could offend some of them too.
