That's a very interesting exaggeration.
"Most of it about how much of a fuckwit I was"
I don't recall ever saying that..
"30 seconds" Unless my clock shifted 10 minutes, I don't ever
recall even addressing you much less 'abusing within 30sec'
While I don't deny that later on, I got quite annoyed with you,
to say that I "jumped on you and abused you" is uh.. interesting..

I believe you went on to call tbm a 'fuckwit' also iirc.
probably me too, *shrug*,
tbm and benc are great people, I guess I should be honoured to be
considered fuckwits along with them.
for someone that is looking to get packages sponsored, dam approval,
wants to be an AM, et al. you dont really play well with others.

well -devel is certainly not the "nicest" place around, but still
you tried hard.
here's your reply -

I suppose your revised "diplomatic" version of this would be
"Stick it up your bumhole, halt your waste" ? no idea..

you're an NM, you've contributed nothing to debian so far,
you've done nothing but piss off people, create a poor image,
and push people away from you. Sure we all get pissed off sometimes.
but the consistency with which you do it makes rubidium atoms
envious. it seems that you take every opportunity to complain
and make a fuss. THIS IS NOT PRODUCTIVE.
from the irc.ins.net.uk MOTD
o Using this server is a privilege, not a right.
If you dont like it or its opers, use another server.
Are we obliged to you? no.
Debian is made of people, most of us never meet IRR (in Real
reality), so even if someone is mature there, we don't know.
we can go on how we see them act on IRC and in mailing lists.
its not just a matter of personally liking someone, sure
but there's no reason to make things hard on yourself.
