Mr. Alan,
You are jumping to conclusions without any reason.  There is nothing wrong with me sending you a private email especially when I wouldn't know if you are on this list or .  If you think it is rude then it is only your thought.
Calm down and try not to be so picky.
Now regarding FAQ, it only covers EAP-TLS.  Read it and find out for yourself.
