I'd like to say that I'm sorry about the harsh wording in my reply. That
was uncalled for, sorry about that Arafat.
However, I still think that people need to be careful when they write
emails like this. If you really want to better the situation, in this
case, get someone to help Ximian do RTL support, an email asking for
someone with RTL expertise to help you will in most cases work much
better than any sort of confronting email.
