No, I understood completely.  And we have nothing we can do to censure
either.  The definition of "censure" as it applies in this case:

"an official reprimand, as by a legislative body of one of it's members"

The only reprimand we have is pulling CVS or fedorabugs access.  And
that is the only one I think we should have.

Nobody here has any authority to tell a contributor "bad Christopher!
you shouldn't do that."  Know why?  Because it doesn't accomplish
anything, and it doesn't have any effect.  Period.  Someone could say
that and the contributor could just ignore it.  This whole damn
discussion is pointless!
