His comments were on-topic.  The topic of this list is Lucene, not its 
contributors or users.  As I said before, ad hominem remarks are not 
acceptable.  We do not demand that everyone equally understand every 
issue, otherwise there would be little to discuss.

Some folks may find some things offensive.  There's often little we can 
do about that.  It's certainly no excuse to start making ad hominem 
statements.  An important technique here is to respond to things you 
find offensive in a polite manner, or not at all.
