Stan, you are still a XFS expert, you are still a hardware expert, and I 
love reading your posts at debian-user, I sometimes even search for those, 
you still know a lot and heck you are still Stan and as such without any 
achievement or knowledge at all a precious being.

Just like anyone else on this list (and elsewhere) is a precious being just 
as they are.

So whats so difficult with admitting that what you wrote about Ext4 and 
journal replay as at least misleading?

Heck, even I was confused at first. Cause the manpage of fsck.ext4 IMHO is

I am concerned about the tendency I perceive in open source, heck general 
computer communities to bind own value to being right on a topic. There is 
no, absolutely no connection at all. You and everyone else is valuable and 
precious without any prerequisite at all.

I also take some to learn out of this myself: Cause I was obsessed with 
being right myself and bound my value to it as well. I have overdone my 
previous mails. Sorry for that.
