I don't like assholes.

There are a lot of people on DJB's dns mailing list that are assholes. Complete and utter assholes. It makes it really hard to be on the list, but it's got some useful info when someone other than the assholes are talking. I understand djbdns a lot better for being on it, but I really wish I didn't have to be.

Of course, the fact that DJB is an asshole probably encourages assholes to sprout around him. Regardless, the fact is it's one of the least friendly public technical mailing lists I've seen; newbies come in asking questions and get flamed. Heavily. A few people have tried to stop the assholishness, but without much effect. So... bleh.
