Embarrassed? Why? Surprised by it, perhaps.

I made no comment at all on his behaviour, I was commenting on yours - in
fact I think he was wrong to behave in such a way. I imagine he regrets
it. How that makes him a 'maniac' I don't know. Merely human, more likely.

It's also interesting that you never condemn Bill Gates or Steve Ballmer
when they attack Free software and its advocates, often in the most
offensive terms.

You can't have it both ways.
