	You'd have to ask Steve what his intention was.  From my

	No, if you consciously choose not to sign up for the TWiki and 
participate in the poll, then you lose the right to complain about 
the results of the poll.

	That was directed to you personally.  If you choose to take a 
rude, flippant, and abrasive attitude in your responses, then you can 
expect to receive the same in return.

	I apologize to everyone else if they thought that this was 
somehow directed at them.
