    Please calm down and show some goddamn respect to anyone you are
    talking with here.  You have no right to treat people like that around

If you think ESR was mistreating someone, I think that was a
misunderstanding.  Someone else had suggested he work on various
projects to help Mercurial become more popular.  He referred to those
suggested projects as "futile gestures" -- but that doesn't insult any
person, not even the person who suggested those projects.  His message
criticized the suggestion, not the person.
