I appreciate you giving the backstory here, but having to include
another web server, though, is not something I'd describe as "easier"
when compared to other tools that require only one.

I was confrontational to Scott because his posts were snide, rude,
useless knee-jerk defenses of his pet stack.

My complaints really began with this very point; recall one of my
original points was the poor state of documentation concerning the
idiosyncratic installation requirements of Typo.
If it were more clear why I should consider installing another web
server just to run Typo from Typo's own docs, perhaps I wouldn't be
complaining about the docs.

I certainly wasn't asking Scott for help, and he certainly wasn't
providing any. He jumped in to tell me my assessment of the state of
Ruby/Rails/Typo installation was wrong, which is simply incorrect.
He's offered nothing of value to me in re: my actual problems.
My original posts to this list met with either no response at all, or,
more recently, helpful responses from Frederic. Frankly, I was
surprised, after that, to get Scott's fanboy eruptions. I believe I
dealt with him appropriately, and with a level of grace appropriate
for handling such a poster.
