And so the obtusion continues...
That statement was not solely about this particular encounter at all.
It is a fundamental observation about the nature of almost all
incoming discussion from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coupled with the yet to be seen ability to read or write code
(accounting only for the calyesto discussions I've personally
encountered, which have been far too many), and the continuing trend
to resort to bullying and unjustified personal attack, the totality of
calyesto contributions to the Debian corpus have very likely in sum
been a net negative.
Maybe that can change? Please?
