Jesus christ, does anybody in this group *not* knee-jerk into hostility
without thinking? I didn't post that! Get your facts straight before you
bitch at me.

My problem is that Linus on the one hand rejects my patches because, I quote
"we do not want to work with anonymous people", but then happily accepts and
commits my fixes _without credit_! And then rubs my face in it. If they
want me to respect their policy, how about not changing it whenever it suits

Or what about Daniel outright insulting BlueChip for 'only whinging and
having made no contributions', and then when BlueChip clearly proves
otherwise, doesn't even have the decency to issue an apology? Is there
honour in these people?? I have been (and still am) involved in other
projects, and have never had to deal with such disgraceful behaviour!

In case anybody missed it, this is how I arrived here:

"Hi guys, great work you've done on this thing! So great in fact that two
days after reading about what RockBox can do, I'm holding a H140 in my hand

The bullshit I've since had thrown at me has got me here. And still I
report core bugs because technically Rockbox is a great project and I've
dedicated a huge amount of time to it already. Getting those things fixed
as I find them seems like the right thing to do, especially in light of the
3.0 deadline. But what the hell am I bothering for?

> And I would advise against using the alias 'gl.tter' as it strongly
resembles the name of a fellow countryman of you who's in jail for not so
nice things. Unless they have internet access there ;)

We have a word for that in England, it rougly translates as 'pathetic'.
