from what i saw, this particular thread (but actually this also happened with 
previous threads started by that same person), it seems every post is an 
incitement for a flamefest. I do have only limited time, and if all that time 
is being spent in reading emails...

Now i easily can and _have_ ignored this thread (mark thread as read); i admit 
i'm not really planning on doing this kind of blocking atm, and i do think 
that given a few more new threads by this person and the problem will have 
sorted itself (ie: no more people replying to it), and i also admit that my 
frustration got the better of me, and looking at this email the opportunity 
presented itself for a kind of a "statement-ish statement" which is completely 

As such, i would like to ask anyone here to refrain from commenting on this 
thread, as it appears thinking back on this that i'm no better with regards to 
trolling than the person of whom i'm sure you know who i meant.
