Ah, the power of denial. I can think of a few texts that describe you
perfectly - I think you'd find them anything but 'tone free'. There is no
tone-free text.

Let's see if you can take what you dish out (remember it's tone free):

The idea that someone's library needs to have perfect tags, that if a single
file (regardless of origin) is tagged a certain way, Rockbox will enable
some unexpected feature is moronic and short-sighted (how's that for tone?
And I'm being diplomatic). For someone who thinks of their 'oversight'
ability as highly as you do, it's utterly bizarre how you can't see how
idiotic it actually is.

Tags are all over the place, files come from different destinations, not
everybody even knows how to change them. Should every user really
'analy-retentively' keep their tags perfectly organised at all times, just
to please your own anal-rentive need to be right at all cost about a stupid
suggestion?

> I agree with everything Jeff wrote, and unfortunately the attitude he

Why would I want to be associated with a project whose public face can
be so arrogant, unhelpful and frankly rude?

Finally some semse on this list (took long enough). 'Respect' is a good
word Paul, look it up (and no, you don't get any if you don't give it).
