Hi Andy,

I don't really like the way that came out. I believe that quotes like
"C++ is not the solution for you" or "Whether anyone has the guts to
employ you" don't belong on this list. For what it's worth let me
state here that these comments in no way reflect the opinions of the
reviewer, nor in my opinion do they reflect the views of the rest of
the community. I have found Brian's work to be very inspirational, if
not yet ready for boost acceptance on the first try, and his posts
here are highly professional, patient (in light of those who would
have him justify FP) and educational. I respectfully ask you to
refrain from posts of this nature in the future as others on this list
may also feel that they are rather offensive.
