I think you will find that mellowness comes with age.  Many people post about 
the HttpFilter, because it's a valued piece of code - including the author of 
this thread.

I've read a number of posts over recent weeks where people have offered to 
help write an NTLMv2 filter.  I don't think it's particularly rude to offer 
to help fix the broken jcifs static configuration to make the Ntlm filter 
work, and I certainly don't think you should be turning down offers of help 
to build an open source NTLMv2 filter.  The last time I wrote on this issue, 
a number of people agreed.

Would it help if I just fixed the broken static configuration code, fixed the 
Ntlm filter, and passed back the code for inclusion?
