Not really sure what you mean by his attitute.  He was thanking you, 
As far the 70%, that would be a good topic for a poll on  
Please propose it !

Feel free to forward these mails on or make them public somewhere (hiding 
the email addresses of course).  I'm sure I can tell the difference 
between real ones and faked ones on content.

No, I don't understand the sentence and don't see where Christian, in his 
mail you just replied to, threw dirt at you.

I think your use of plural is wrong, I seem to recall only one person ever 
being labeled as troll, and that person wasn't even sure if he was an 
ex-KDE-turned-to-GNOME user, the other way around, or any non-exhaustive 
combination of "KDE", "GNOME", "user", and "switched".

Seriously, to get your posts taken seriously, drop some of the common 
slandering themes you keep recurring back to.  There *are* useful comments 
in your posts, but your signal-to-noise-ratio is pretty low because of the 
silly stuff you keep coming back to, like
- gconf is evil
- gnome is hijacking X
- gnome is overtaking all other projects known to mankind (I'm sure Bill
  is sleeping very badly since 2.2 got out)
- I'm calling you a dictator but don't take it personal because I said 
  sorry at the end of my rant

Stick to facts and personal opinion here and there without name-calling 
and you'll get a much more receptive audience.
