Are you really that slow that you don't know and can't recall what
you wrote or see the implications when you state what you believe to
be factual without foundation?
If I put my car key in the ignition of my car, turn it and nothing
happens I call the dealer because it's obviously broken.
You most likely would interpret that statement to be only what is
stated and have some smart-assed comment that implies I'm not smart
enough to determine if there is an electrical issue such as a dead
battery preventing the car from starting or I didn't turn the key far
enough and I conclude this based on the way in which you respond not
only to me but others.

I specifically state it is my personal decision regarding the state
of the source tree, are you now accepting responsibility for the
entire ubuntu source tree?
The remark does not attack your code and I am not the only person who
has a poor opinion regarding the state of the ubuntu source tree.
If you want to be responsible for a public project that offers public
support that's great but expect that issue will come up and people
will expect support and this has nothing to do with the purpose for
which they use the software, my opinion is this, it's a public
project which offers support and you seem to be the leader so, if
it's broke, fix it, if it isn't broke attempt to help the user in a
kind and courteous manner and if you can't be kind and courteous
don't involve yourself in assisting them, they are already frustrated
enough by the fact that the software doesn't work the way they expect
it to that they don't need to be further aggravated by a person

My comments about you are generalized and in defense of not only
remarks and statements you have made towards me but also others.
You really don't appear to have enough common sense to let things go
and believe you have made no attacks on anyone at any time which is
sad at best but you are who you are.
When I receive off-list comments from users who are afraid to ask
questions because of the way in which you and others appear to
respond to people in general who are less knowledgeable than you
about your code or the code base in general, this only further
substantiates my opinion that you should seek professional help and
refrain from responding to any pleas for assistance because you don't
and wont play nice with others.
Others have chimed in and made comments regarding your condescending
attitude and behavior but you seem to relish in the arguments, my
personal opinion of you as a sane and respectful party who has the
best interest of the b43 project they claim to represent has sunk so
low that it's not publicly possible to state it without violating
If people didn't think you were so important to the project and had a
replacement they would have dumped you years ago, they accept your
antics because it's the trade-off they are willing to accept and many
people from this list have made this comment to me, the difference
is, I don't mind saying it publicly.
Because they are willing to accept it doesn't mean every person who
comes into contact with you must and I certainly don't.
Do yourself a favor and let it go, it's not beneficial to the project
to act in this manner and it is my observation that you really seem
to have no common sense regarding your treatment towards others when
you can make unfounded remarks about an individual as if it were
I understand how people with power will abuse that power when ever
someone questions their actions and attitudes
