I disagree... This is a specific mailing list, about a single topic:
mulinux. You are not talking to the whole world, nor the smallest part of
Italy. We also are offtopic, indeed.

If Mr. had something to tell, he simply should tell it. Even
in chinese. I'm sorry, but if he was really interested in the ML, it's
stupid and childish to leave for that reason. These "dramatic" actions don't
bring nothing good to us nor to him... It's my opinion, of course.
Anyway, as you can see, in respect to all people (italian or not) now I try
to write in english, but please let me know when I make mistakes, so I can
correct myself :)
