Here is my advice to you. Get a life, lighten up a little, permit yourself
to take seriously something outside of your own thinking about programming.
Even on the Boost NGs there is room for that. And finally stop trying to
read into remarks that I make some sort of evil intent. I have only the best
admiration and wishes for the programmers at Boost. But I speak my mind and
will continue to do that as long as I live no matter how popular or
unpopular are my understanings or opinions.
