Probably. However, the context of this thread was not at all about a
maintainer who refused to apply a perfectly sensible patch. Getting
confronted with language like that, out of the blue, is no longer
something I'm willing to accept here.
A decade or so ago, this kind of thing was regarded as normal on our
mailing lists. We mostly-succeeded in civilizing the place, and frankly I
like them much better that way.
Slippery slope, and all that.
