Well if you really want me to make a point about how people who are
needlessly belligerent on inappropriate threads are evidently
incompetent at life, that's fine. I could have a field day nitpicking
the psychology of people who overcompensate for their own inferiority
by directing disproportionate aggression towards hapless randoms who
dare to suggest naive ideas. I just think development threads are more
productive when socially inept morons aren't derailing conversations
with fruitless personal attacks. You understand the inherent pitfalls
of fallacious behavior right?

No, I want a terminal emulator that can behave like a terminal
emulator. Last time I checked xmessage wasn't a terminal emulator.
