Please all accept my apologies in advance for not adding to the content of the 
conversation with this mail (I guess most arguments are on the table now 
anyway so it's getting nowhere IMO).

Now, Sebastian definitely has a point even if it's not directly relevant to 
the content of the thread. Although I definitely understand and agree on your 
position regarding remaining time (already stated that, and it's definitely 
not popular[*] for some reason), I have to admit that the mails in this thread 
are getting aggressive and the one Sebastian was referring to was in my (non 
native speaker) opinion looking borderline insulting.

Of course, I can understand why you're getting aggressive... As I said earlier 
people are kind of obsessed by this "remaining time" lie, and this thread is 
like preaching in a desert. Still that doesn't allow *anybody* to become 
aggressive. I'd like to emphasis *anybody* here, as I've seen quite a share of 
participants in this thread becoming overly aggressive.

Sorry for the noise.
