Period. » is insulting for other projects: we are working hard too, and 
we have done for years.

I don't want to enter in a project war, I naively hope that most of free 
software "social network" projects have more or less a common goal and 
can collaborate between them (and we have talked about collaborating in 
the last 2 summits). But I can't let somebody publicly say that without
