you really don't get it, do you?

i am fully aware of my own limitations - limitations that you use to good
effect to justify telling me, in simplistic [and antagonistic] terms,
where the fuck to get off.

being fully aware of my own limitations, i RELY on the good-will of the
open source community to help me overcome them, with the end-result being
the high quality software, conforming to your _precious_ standards, just
_not by me alone_.

to undermine what i instigate [that many _other_ people then have the good
sense to realise is important, not necessarily up to scratch but it does a
pretty damn good job] just because it does not conform, at once and
immediately, to your precious standards, is FUCKING STUPID.

when are you ever going to get it?????

YES i expect you to drop your fucking stupid standards - not for a
release, but for sufficient time to allow incremental development and work
TOWARDS your standards - one cvs commit at a time.

now stay out of my way before you make me REALLY mad.
