Nobody forces you to use Varnish, and given your unnecssarily snotty
attitude, I suggest you stick with Squid.

This is of course pretty harsh on the squid project, but you will
almost certainly not be able to contribute positively to the Varnish
project with that attitude.

Killfile, meet Manuel, Manuel, bye!

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
