Oh well:-) Quite often my mailer delivers messages out of order
(common problem discussed here earlier) and I was not aware that this
particular thread was dying out. Even though Lua people live on the
Moon we, like anyone else, have emotions and opinions which are quite
strong sometimes.

The measure of civility on a mailing list is the length of time in
which these threads die out and amount of scar tissue left afterwards.

Signing off political discussions for now.
