Now that's a nice twist.

I guess this is the sentence which offended you:
> The final (first) productive installation should protect the access to my private WLAN with 3+ APs and 10+ clients.

I don't know how, but obviously you misread that as:
> The fact is that you said FreeRADIUS doesn't "protect access", simply because you didn't understand how it works.
It's simply not true that I said or wrote anything like that!
You are just implying that into my statement, just read it again!
If you think different than just show me were I wrote that.

FreeRADIUS to me is (as far as I can judge) a great piece of software which capabilities to 'protect access' is heavily dependent on the implementation and configuration within the installation. And yes. it is my goal that FreeRADIUS _should_ protect the access to my network knowing that I'm the weakest link in this chain. To tackle this, I joint this list.

It was you who accused me to imply, blame, misread and insult.

Stating my opinion:
With that experience I would have expected some more seniority and not being offended by the word 'should'.
I call that 'jumping the gun'.

Never is, never was.

but it's wrong for me to point out offensive comments.
You have all the rights to point out offensive comments _IF_ the are offensive.

If that is how you want to be seen on this list, its up to you.

Just my 2ct and my last comment on this incident.
