I don't think that would be very hard to guess..
- Theming drupal withouth knowledge of PHP has been improved since a  
little while and is available in HEAD now after PHPTemplate hit the  
- I do think that without any knowledge of PHP, you can't theme  
drupal. I tried to convince *some* people to use wrapper functions  
inside theme_* functions so they are easier to customize, but that  
had a negative aura around itself.. I'm still not convinced that this  
would be a bad thing todo;

And, afterwards I'm not very curious about what he thinks about  
drupal anymore after the words he already spread here. If the guy  
needs help, he can always ask but in a gentle way of talking. Which  
is imo not like this!

So if he can talk without words/sentences as 'bitch', 'fuckin' and  
the populair way of writing I am always willing to help someone. But  
this get's me in the wrong mood..
The community does good things andn keep improving drupal, which is  
really nice. This kind of e-mails are humiliating for all the people  
who do their best to keep improving drupal and work on it a lot. The  
way of writing makes me angry, and sick..

For my final words I'm lowering myself to the level of the original  

"The e-mail is full of shit, without any real solutions of what could  
be improved. I don't know who the hell this guy may be, but he  
probebly think he's God or something.
I truly ask myself why people are writing such e-mails.. I cannot see  
what the thinking behind it is, or could be.
IMO these kind of e-mail could/should be ignored..."

As said above, this is it.. PERIOD

When the e-mail is rewritten on a normal way, and does have some  
improvements which we should work on it will be a whole other story..  
But this is not normal..

Just my 0.02 cents.. (I don't expect you guys to feel the same, but I  
just want to point this out)

Your sincerely,
