forgive me for editing down the previous post but i did not mean it to
be "censorship" - i meant to save space,  but i do not think your
comment was constructive or valid, however, should the shoe be on the
other foot; i would consider it "bad form" for a similar comment to be
made on the blackbox mailing list by an openbox user, do you not agree? 

i do not consider your input to be benificial to anyone (let's be
honest, it is ambiguous at best?) and to be degrading to the 'blackbox
community' i used blackbox for many years before openbox, i have a lot
of respect for it. i think blackbox is noble windowmanger and that is
often misrepresented, at best, by its somewhat stalwart users. 

bradley has done some sterling work with it, i am very impressed with
its develeopment since he has re-started development on it, i wish it
only the best in the future, i do not believe openbox shares its goals.

i hope that in future, as has clearly not been possible in the past,
that openbox and blackbox can co-exist peacefully (this includes not
spamming each others mailing lists :).
