In my opinion, it's both right and welcome. This list is my *one*
connection to this technical "circle". If I had OP's problem, this is
certainly the first list I would look to for an answer. Thinking of
the definition of CentOS, if you want no part of a
rebuilding-rhel-devel-list, then maybe you should not be on *this*
list, or just not be *rebuilding* rhel in the first place, hmm?

Further, you're "polite request" sounds more like passive-aggressive
hogwash, and it could have just as easily been stated at the very
beginning when OP stated very openly, "(Posting on this list instead
of a RHEL list as even though strictly speaking this is a RHEL issue I
expect CentOS developers to be familiar
with the problem I'm running into.)".

Ah yes, the Royal "We". FWIW, I missed that "bit" also - I see no such
statement in this thread.

"Guessing" as to what each, or any, list member has read, or not read,
is both wrong and unwelcome.

The latter comment may fit in at alt.therapy.centos, but here it
sounds judgemental and controlling.
1. Delete the bothersome e-mail.
2. Move on.

That said, I segue into a "Thank you". :-)
No really, I mean it. I'm nearing the end of our Thanksgiving holiday
here in the US, and I am again thinking of the time and effort of so
many people that makes CentOS what it is - sincerely, "Thank You" to
everyone. Just please, don't contribute *emotional* time and
effort.....
