Some people won't download software from websites... Some people won't use
cellphones... Anyone who uses TextMate is probably using a web browser to

If I didn't like TextMate enough, I'd have been turned off by its lack of a
forum because, in my experience, developers who don't provide forums tend to
be less responsive to their users and have less inclusive user communities.

Within a thread, this can be a problem. Of course in this mailing list I end
