There is a point in life where clarification is necessary. do you not
think so, or do the wo's of others just not matter to you, because your
life is wonderful? Your message has not a hint of context in it, other
than the subject. What, exactly, are you wining about here, and does
anybody care? Are you here to follow the list rules, or just bitch about
them like other people? Or do you have something useful to contribute?

Nice knowing you then. If an email list can change your mind, then you
weren't really convinced in the first place. I think on my keyboard there
is a key called the 'Delete' key, sometimes I find myself having to use it.
If you haven't yet found it, consider learning where it is in future. I'm
really not sure what you planned to gain by complaining that messages on an
email list that, by the way, nobody is forcing you to read, would make you
drop Rockbox in favour of your default firmware achieves to be honest,
however I am but one man. Is your player going to notice? I sincerely
doubt it. Will you notice when you have most likely inferior firmware on
your player again? Most definitely yes. You are swayed too easily

Define quote unquote, 'the real world'. What, exactly, constitutes the
real-world for you? Just thought I'd ask for some clarification here since
I, obviously, don't know.
