I call, you win.

I only represent myself when I post from this mailing address. Not anyone else.
I have tried to add some perspective to this issue, and give some
history so why it is a big deal could become clear. If I have offended
you, which it seems I have, or have offended other Koha users. I
unreservedly apologise for that. If you feel I haven't listened to
you, then I apologise for that also.

I love Koha, and I love working with Koha and Koha users, and want the
community to continue to grow and thrive. That is where I am coming

The fact that I feel that I have to post these messages makes these
last few months the worst of the 10 years I have been involved in
Koha. I do know though that there are fantastic people in the
community though, so I know it will get better.

I do try to listen to every Koha user who takes the time to email the
list, yourself included, I just have a hard time knowing where you are
coming from.

I will no longer attempt to push back on you, or to try to debate your
points, as it seems I did so poorly.

Once again for any offense I have caused to any Koha users, I apologise.
