Er... the first person to use the word "crappy" in that entire bug
discussion is, um, you. Usually when you put quote marks around things
that's supposed to indicate that it's a quote.
That whole bug discussion is rather frustrating due to a collection of
misunderstandings and misconceptions that weren't made easier by a very
aggressive bug reporter, but it looks like it mostly got sorted out. I'm
not seeing, in that thread, what you're upset about; Fabian could have
probably phrased a few things better, but he de-escalated a
confrontational bug report reasonably well.
