 whilst at the same time apologising for being disruptive, i'd like to
ask you why you consider that to be a bad thing.

 i apologise for the use of profanity which may cause offense.

 i ask you to consider this: if it wasn't for the frustration at being
treated in a completely inappropriate fashion, i wouldn't feel the
need to use profanity to express frustration, would i?

 if you see things from my perspective, it's that i have great
enthusiasm to contribute to free software in areas which require such
a wild and overwhelming mix of expertise that nobody is willing to
step up to the plate.

 that's where i step in.

 i will be delighted to do so.  in return, you - apple employees -
will treat my contributions with a little more respect, and perhaps
even apologise for some of the inappropriate treatment.

 i'm sorry to have to say this but i promise you that that will do
nothing but prove my point.

 _read_ what i've written.  sticking fingers in ears will only get the
ends of your fingers sticky, not solve the problem.

 sorry i have to go, baby's crying.
