You know, it's strange.
There is occasionally this perception that I see amongst some members of the open source
community that the donation of your time you make to the community somehow *entitles* you to be
a smarmy prick in public.
The page you pointed to doesn't even mention your name, much less does it contain any links
that even *appear* to point to any information concerning whether X.org is the same as the
Consortium. Certainly, it is neither more nor less blather than my own website, but at least
I'm not pointing people to mine with a snotty off-hand remark.
So it didn't seem to be a fertile ground for any research (which, rather than analysis, seems
to be what you're upbraiding me for not having done). In any event, I gave you three bites
before calling you on your attitude; I'm done now.
