English isn't my native tongue either.
Sure, but that just adds to the language barrier.
Sure, some of what I write will offend people because I am not
as clearly but I don't think that is the situation with Harald.
I do. I've met him in person. He's a nice guy, he's just really frustrated
due to changes being made to Fedora which consistently make his work harder
(and I can fully understand that, also because some of the changes annoy the
heck out of me as well).
He has been moderated quite heavily which is fairly unprecedented in
Fedora lists because he is a repeat offender and continues to behave
rudely in several mailing lists he has been subscribed to. He has been
asked many times to moderate his language and he should pay more attention
to it instead of claiming that is the only way to express anything.
The "rude" words he's using are a result of the repeated frustration caused
by unhelpful changes to Fedora.
Instead of going after Harald, you should go after the changes which are
frustrating him that much! He's far from the only one annoyed by those
