I'd have to agree. Trying to have a reasonable discussion with Richard is
hard because he simply will not drop a point. If you use the words open
source he will bitch for 20 minutes *every* time its used, he wont cough
politely or comment briefly once and accept that the other parties don't
give a flying [censored for australian archive sites].

I'm glad we have him around - he's a great thinker, and provides a point of 
absolute reference to free software but diplomat, finder of consensus and
former of consensus.. no.

(who doesn't claim to be a diplomat either 8))
