I will admit that I could have been more tactful.  I will admit it is
possible to use ATrpms without messing up your system.  I will admit
that many people use ATrpms without any problems.  That being said, I
will continue to encourage people to *NOT* use ATrpms as long as the
repository continues to override base packages.

I would like to see valid opinions not be classified as "FUD" just
because you don't agree with them.

Creating a repository that forks Fedora and essentially creates its
own distribution and puts the burdon on the community to support two
separate distributions is much more inappropriate as far as I'm
concerned.  It just can't be accepted that repository maintainers
represent the project in such an inappropriate way!
