Yes, I am getting it. But I'd always thought that content did matter. [*]

All right. I publicly apologize to Henrique for not asking him first.

Ignore what I have quoted from him and consider only what I have written:


Users here are not at all interested in the psychological state
of a particular developer. On the contrary, every developer should be required
to deal with every bug report in an objective manner.

Inappropriate dismissal or incorrect evaluation of bug reports could
be dealt with if bug reports were subject to peer review. I think that
review by wider audience may be instrumental in that...



[*] When we talk just about code, objectively, I wouldn't hesitate to
post it to public places.
