Sorry Alan, but with the greatest respect I believe it important that 
these types of discussions are allowed to happen openly within the 
community. This thread was started on a community mailing list by a 
member of that community expressing what he would like to see from his 
Community Enterprise OS. Why people feel the need to be so aggressive, 
I'm not sure but we are all adults and I'm sure no one will be mortally 
wounded by a few ill chosen words in the heat of debate.

Some within the community have expressed what they would like from their 
Community Enterprise OS and the developers have made it perfectly clear 
that it is their Community Enterprise OS (not the community's), and that 
the community can go whistle (my interpretation). That's a useful 
discussion to have openly and in public IMHO. Please do not try to 
stifle it.
