Michael,

No, you haven't.  You haven't done a darned thing to contribute to 
PostgreSQL.  You haven't donated time, money, contacts, or anything else 
that I've ever seen.   Heck, you even attended Linux World Expo and didn't 
volunteer to help out at the PostgreSQL booth. 

I sent you a private e-mail that if you wanted people to listen to your 
opinions, you should lead by example, by contributing to the project.  If 
you continue to pick arguments which make no sense, as a non-contributor, 
then you *are* wasting people's time.  And yesterday, you *agreed* with me 
that you should really start contributing.

The fact that you mean well ... and that I know that you did eventually 
contribute useful time to OpenOffice.org ... has kept me from 
unsubscribing you from this list.  But please start thinking like a 
contributor and a participant in a community of consensus.
