It has been rightly pointed out to me that my statement above is
an inappropriate personal attack. While I did not intend to attack
Mr. O'Hern personally, but merely a pithy reply in opposition of
the idea of unnecessary user limitation, nonetheless, my words
actually did.

As such, they were inappropriate to this list and I apologize to
Mr. O'Hern and to the list in general.
