  13. bear ugh, I so want to make a note/comment about folks needing to remember to be polite in responding to others... but i can't find the words to say it without sounding like someone's mother wagging her finger

  15. stpeter bear: what's the context? one of the XSF lists?
  16. bear yes, the operators - I just got a bit twitchy reading some of the responses to the gtalk posting
  17. bear my thought when reading was "hey now, at least they are talking to us and responding, we should be civil in response" but that sounded preachy
  18. Kev I read it, I decided you can't moderate The Internet, and moved on.
  19. bear ha - yea, well, I haven't reached that level of zen yet
  20. Kev But it /is/ our list, so maybe I should have cared.
  21. bear the only reason it raised a concern for me was that it's the operators list and I feel that is like our customer support forum
  22. Kev But, you know, the other side to this is that if Google have suddenly started blocking federation...that's not good and trying to prevent people being irritated by it is going to be hard work.
  23. bear I do agree with the message being given by them, just would have liked it to be less contentiously delivered
  24. bear hell, maybe I am becoming all wishy-washy
  25. stpeter bear: :)
  26. ralphm maybe people are fed up with xmpp googlisms, but yeah, politeness goes a long way
  27. ralphm Per seems to handle it quite nicely so far
  28. bear part of why I said something first here :)
  29. ralphm what you /can/, though, is send him a personal message. Not to appologise, but to thank him for participating. We'd love more of that.
  30. Ashley has joined
  31. Kev Yes, that seems smart Ralph.
  32. bear send Per a message?
  33. Kev Yeah.
  34. bear k
  35. Kev You could also offer to help if they can better describe the issues they're facing.
  36. bear yep
  37. Kev That someone might have a preferable solution to blanket bombing S2S.
  38. Kev Hoorah for mixed metaphors :D
  39. bear laughs
  40. Kev I don't know why, I take some perverse pleasure in doing that.
  41. bear k, email sent direct to Per thanking him for posting and offering to help coordinate any resource wrangling that may be needed for any federation issue/problem/work
  42. Kev Thanks.
  43. Kev "Bear, the gentler side of the XSF"
  44. bear if it helps, I will be the public facing teddy bear
  45. ralphm awesome
  46. Kev No, not awesome. I do not want to see Bear in a teddy.
  47. bear adjusts his packing list for the next summit
  48. Kev To add the mind bleach?
  49. ralphm has left

  66. bear peter - FYI and all that - i'm also class 2 certified at StartSSL if that helps in any way
  67. stpeter bear: cool, we can start a WoT for jabberites :-)
  68. stpeter I used to be Class 3 verified
  69. bear I went and did the class 2 so I could get a "proper" wildcard cert
  70. stpeter nods
  71. stpeter maybe I'll send such messages to members@ in the future :-)
  72. bear talked to a nice israeli lady during the confirmation :)
  73. stpeter heh
  74. Lance I'm going to upgrade to class 2 soon as well. My existing certs are about to expire
  75. bear hmm, bring up the conversation levels on members@ with more techy talk?
  76. stpeter bear: sure :-)
  77. bear tomorrow I need to figure out where the git repo lives on the server and see if I can get access to it
  78. bear I want to start storing the articles in it so others can help clean them up
  79. stpeter nods
  80. stpeter it's on athena
  81. stpeter I can track it down for you
  82. stpeter but right now I need to run
  83. stpeter bbl
