The sarcasm was uncalled for, but other than that, I don't see João's
conduct in this thread as a problem, no.  He proposed a lightweight
alternative to a full-blown clojure-mode, which is a legitimate
proposal.  If nothing else, people could take his code into their init
files and use it locally, if they want.

And even if his behavior were problematic, calling your opponent a
"jerk" is far from being kind.  Discussions are a two-way street, and
if you are opposed to unkind words, you should try very hard not to
use them yourself.
