OpenBSD "I started OpenBGP two years ago, after getting completely fed up with Zebra, which we were running before. There were lots of bugs, bad configuration language, performance problems, and since I don't speak Japanese - I had problems understanding the documentation. Zebra makes heavy use of cooperative threads, which leads to it's main problem: combined with the central event queue, Zebra can lose sessions while busy. Zebra successor, Quagga, caught up and apparently fixed many of the bugs. However, they still used the Zebra's design, which I think is wrong. So, the issues are kind of unfixable."

If you find an apple being called an apple, is it insulting? If an orange is called an orange, is it insulting?
I don't particularly find those situations insulting, but it insults my intelligence for you to pretend that my correct words are inappropriate because I called a retard a retard.
I saw a man call an apple an orange and I called him a retard for it, if you don't like it, feel free to ignore it, but I don't see it as an insult to call John Edward MaGee, Jr. a giant talking douche for his obvious taking advantage of simple minded people, nor do I see it as one to call eazy a retard for failing to read.
If you invalidate a point because it is made in a manner you don't like, you're going to really hate Penn and Teller's Bullshit and you're going to end up not listening to jack shit all, because noones ever going to talk to you.

"If you find an apple being called an apple, is it insulting?" <-- "Apple" is a noun referring to a type of plant. "Retard" is offensive slang used to imply a person is mentally retarded. You have no way of knowing if the OP is mentally retarded. Ignorant maybe, but mentally retarded? Doesn't seem so. Either way, you have no way of knowing.

"I don't particularly find those situations insulting, but it insults my intelligence for you to pretend that my correct words are inappropriate because I called a retard a retard." I suppose because your English is poor that makes you a "retard" too? You're ignorant of proper usage of this language, and by your standards, that makes you "retarded."

"I saw a man call an apple an orange and I called him a retard for it, if you don't like it, feel free to ignore it, but I don't see it as an insult to call John Edward MaGee, Jr. a giant talking douche for his obvious taking advantage of simple minded people, nor do I see it as one to call eazy a retard for failing to read." Do you just enjoy creating run-on sentences? You must be a "simple minded" person, due to your ignorance of English. Maybe you failed to read your English literature.

"If you invalidate a point because it is made in a manner you don't like, you're going to really hate Penn and Teller's Bullshit and you're going to end up not listening to jack shit all, because noones ever going to talk to you." Honestly, I have no idea what you're trying to say now. That was incoherant. Maybe some inside joke?

Hint: English isn't my primary language and I would never insult somebody for their inability to speak/write it correctly. I'm hardly perfect myself! I just wanted to make a point to this blasphemous person. No offense intended to the rest of you.

In conclusion, Janizary, by your own definition - you are a "retard." So please, don't be the pot that calls the kettle black. Take your attitude somewhere else.
