bytesplit: when did I say it gave me the right to "verbally dispose" of a user? I never said that. I just said that I believe I have a God-given right to say "No" and that these users should respect that.

Don't get me wrong, I don't have a problem with all users - most users are fine, but there are just enough that get on my nerves. And unfortunately these are the most vocal. They seem to constantly feel the need to remind me of how much better mutt or Outlook are and/or that Outlook or mutt can do this and/or that and Evolution can't. After a while it starts to get annoying. And sometimes their comments can be quite hurtful. My guess is that many of them don't even realise how hurtful they are being, but that doesn't make it any better. Hopefully none of them are purposely being cruel, but ya never know.

In other news... I released GMime 1.0.6 last night which should fix up support for 64bit systems. Just needed to change the type of a certain variable in gmime-stream-filter.c to size_t instead of int. Doh! I'm guessing that the reason this caused a bus error on SPARC64 (built with gcc -m64) was that int must have been 32bit while size_t was 64bit? *shrug*
