I think it is important to remember that all the people on this list
are human. There is nothing wrong in expressing your desire for Sisina
and his family to survive the bombing on the MYSQL list. MYSQL is a
piece of software but it is developed, maintained and operated by
people. Besides, if Sisina gets killed, it will slow down MYSQL
development, and take away from the quality of tech support - a
technical unsentimental justification of Paul's posting.
