Sorry, timcw. I have a theory that mgl*zer is stress-testing Advogato's trust metric by behaving poorly, but I can't prove it. Every community needs a town fool, right?
Our fool has 16 "Apprentice" ratings, and I suspect that most of those raters don't realize that by giving a rating, they're rating him up; there is no negative rating in Advogato. These people, rated him a journeyer, which suggests you might want to reconsider your rating of them too: binaryfoo, sand, Barbicane, besfred, const, Rabbitt, sye, badvogato, Tofu, kilmo, nixnut, and robocoder.
update: I'm not that thin-skinned, jaldhar; do what you want. How much merit does an author of a single software project and daily diary entries of nothing but vitriol and links to other places deserve, though? I don't think you'd behave the same if you didn't agree with his ravings.
