Yeah, it's kinda scary. If Lorn had simply acknowledged the issue as
valid, this debate would have been over at least 24 hours and 100,000
words ago. Instead, He's managed to initiate a flame war.

But then, I don't know if he knows that my position is valid, really - I
don't think he's actually reading my emails. If he was, surely by now he
would have just run the experiment I asked and reported the times...
surely that's easier than consistently ignoring a question I have
directly asked five times now... but no. As far as I'm concerned there
are two possible reasons for this: He's either not really reading my
emails, or he's trying to provoke me. If he's out to provoke me, then
mission accomplished. This is not something I would choose to do from my
work email address, though.

Yeah. Sending that kind of crap from his company address, and signing it
with a company signature is really scary - is he providing Trolltech /
Nokia's official position with regards to this? he is their official
representative on this mailing list...

Coincidentally enough, minutes after I finished typing up my complaint
to Nokia yesterday, I saw a slashdot article come up on my RSS reader:
"Nokia to slash 1700 jobs"...

Nope. I don't usually run into these guys that often, perhaps they hear
me coming and scatter like the cockroaches they are.

When I do run into them, I tend to just bulldoze over them by
demonstrating their incompetence. Which is what it boils down to, really
- - Lorn is obviously incompetent to do the job he's doing, or pretending
to do. People like these don't deserve employment, certainly not in a
technical field. As far as I'm concerned, Lorn isn't even qualified to
serve me burgers at McDonalds - you need to provide a public face for
that too.
