i actually did write the article referenced in the above email. then i turned 
it into a presentation and delivered it at aKademy. these slides are posted 
with the rest of the aKademy presentations.

but you see, i try not to tell people that what they are doing is wrong. i 
appreciate how much effort Frans put into the KUAs, even if feel they are a 
bit misguided. so instead of saying, "the KUAs suck" i attempted to offer 
some positive feedback for Frans to use or not use.

after several other ordeals i got tired of dealing with Frans and therefore 
simply said i have no plans for getting involved with his KUAs. not because 
they are a bad idea, nor because the information in them is lacking (which it 
is), but because the way he was going about contributing to KDE is not 
something i'm comfortable with.

you have no idea how many people have come to me privately via email and in 
person expressing how off-base Frans' article on NewsForge was to them and 
asking what i thought about it. talk about an uncomfortable position. why 
would i want to be involved with it any further?
