Yes. In what way was James' request not polite and lacking respect? If 
you cannot handle a simple request and have to throw a tantrum, 'grow 
up' seems to be an appropriate reminder unless of course the word please 
has some other meaning in your book. At which point, I am no longer 

And yes, if you did not try to twist a statement about the acceptance of 
technical contributions to 'must accept administrative changes from 
anybody or cannot use "open" or "community"' then I do not know what it 
is. Since when did 'open' and 'community' give everybody the right to 
make administrative decisions/suggestions without limit?

We missed the boat on the name decision. Live with it.
