Yup. Sometimes Lars sounds to aggresive. :-D

Yes, like the rest of us here, he's also a big fan of FPC. He even using FPC and 
PWU professionally, he makes his living over FPC. So, he's not the enemy! He 
knows all the best of FPC and Lazarus because he uses them on daily basis. PWU 
is one of his contribution back to the FPC community.

Yes. Maybe it's my fault if everybody then looks at him in a negative way 
because of his own article. But, he published that article in his public 
paswiki, somebody else will find it anyway, sooner or later.

Anyway, it did happened to me as well long time ago. ;) Programming language 
community is indeed a very sensitive community, we must write in a very polite 
manner if we want to criticize anything about the language. :)
