Mailing lists are a multiplayer venue. This thread has two people,
yourself one of them, who have expressed that Let's Encrypt is easy.
You are not the person who said it was "easier" (emphasis on the "er"),
and the person I directly replied to in the thread with my comments was
someone who did. I suggest you review the archives if you're not
receiving all of the emails in the thread.

It's evident that you only have half of the conversation, which is not
my fault. I will note that you still refuse the basic courtesy of
Cc'ing me on your replies. Not sure what moral high ground you seem to
perceive yourself as coming from here.
