So, this is a bit annoying already.

    Their JS is opensource

Whether a program is open source is not the pertinent question.
What matters is whether it is free software.
<snip heard many times before tirade about Open Source vs. Free

The proletysing has to stop. He's a GNU orthodox thinking we're complete
idiots of Roman GNUs.

I've asked the mailing-list moderator to handle that already, but they
won't lift a finger. Either he leaves, or I'm out of this mailing-list.

Speaking personally, I have a lot of respect for *your* work, but also
his. I'd rather neither of you leave, but I also don't see one of the
parties trying to get rid of the other.

Having read, and re-read the previous email that you replied to, I
thought it was very fair and reasonable, although some aspects of his
replies were expected (eg: the header, and his reply to the use of the
term "open source").

I'd personally recommend you avoid getting angry at your MUA, read
this (rudely titled, but well written) article: and get back to
hacking :)
