	Your attitude sucks. How much have you invested in Samba? Have you sent
pizza vouchers to any of the main developers (one of whom you just
called dense). If he's dense, what does that make you- He who hasn't
contributed a single thing to the Samba community except indigestion? I
don't even feel like eating anymore tonight.
