Are you joking?

C'mon? Really? You are going to troll the list again with all kinds of
uppity remarks like that and say that I am venting or over-reacting when it
pisses me off that you have a giant chip on your shoulder?

You are the guy who was complaining that our documentation was not
sufficient for you to show up and instantly write a private endpoint that
you have no intention to share with anybody.  And despite all that it only
took you 3 days to get it working *with* our help on IRC.  That was you
right? The same guy everybody told me privately was being a jack-ass and
wondered why I was still helping you?  You have every right to write a
private module but you could try to be a bit more polite asking for help i
would say. Again, small price to pay.

It's appropriate that you commented because yes, you were the last
individual to do the same thing.
To show up on the list bitching about stuff and then explain away your
rudeness with more sarcasm and attitude.
I eventually said ok, fine you didn't mean it rudely, whatever...  So, i
guess I was wrong unless you are going to try to claim this latest email is
not also completely rude?

Criticize the software all you want but every time anybody complains that we
are not doing enough to suit their needs in this type of manner, I am going
to respond the same way.  For every one guy who barges in with guns blazing
complaining about stuff there are 100 who are totally respectful.  We simply
do not condone entitlist attutudes here.  Most other things we could care
less about.

Make fun of our IRC channel all you want but it's much easier to help people
in a group that one at a time on the list all day long.

Seriously, How do you expect me to not get annoyed when you more or less say
I refuse to help people when some weeks I spend the entire day every day
helping people?  This guy you are spreading FUD about me too doesn't even
have a real problem besides when he builds clean on windows he sometimes has
to issue the command a second time to get it to work all the way, we asked
him to file a bug report and to help us gather info.

I can't understand some people.
