Colin, if you make a kind mail, no answer, another and weeks later, it
is as if the spam filter ate it, i believe it is understandable that you
kindof resort to less kind methods.
I remember that two times already, in the handling of NEW uploads, i was
totally ignored during weeks and even month, until i made a public
tantrum in every thread vaguely related to it. Even if the ftp-master
promise to handle it within a week in the NEW queue template response
(well, they maybe removed this now).
This is not how it should work, and i feel a bit sad about this, but
trying to argue that everything is fine is just shuting ones eyes to the
problem at hand, and make those who suffer from it feel even more
despised by the old-timer, cabal, inner ring, whatever you want to call
