I see nothing wrong with Ed's behavior, for the least George deserved
even more. How can a person make a silly claim of which he has no
facts on and to add to that he attacks us users of the Fedora list in
his insulting comments ie:

Why tell all of us this? If he had been asking a question or providing
valuable advice or suggestions then this would all have been a
different case. Frankly I feel insulted by all the nerve of George.
