Firefox is a big project and doesn't even reach 1/5th of the LoC in OSG:

Ogre is a similar project to OpenSceneGraph (a bit smaller in LoC, and the 
VCS history is probably incomplete, I think that it predates this century, 
but even if don't, 8 years is more than 6 months):

So I honestly can't understand how anybody with some idea about programming 
can think of a 3D engine project coded in C++ or any other language using 
inheritance heavily and not autogenerating code a-la Java Webservices, which 
has [actually more than] 1/2 million LoC as measured by Ohloh (not counting 
blanks, comments, etc), can be coded in 6 months.

But that's beside the point.  I didn't ask if he was mocking me, I patiently 
explained it *again* after the "don't be silly" line, in the case that it 
was just a misunderstanding.  I only started to conclude that it must be 
mocking after somebody in there feeled offended and wiped my application 
citing that reason.

Maybe it's Front Desk (and I don't know whether you are part of it or not) 
who could take the advice of "Just ask if you have doubts instead of 
assuming bad things".  I don't know if it's the tone in my emails or what, 
but they've been misunderstanding me throughout all the communication and 
assuming bad things, and then lying about it.

That's what's also happens in debian-project@, everybody thinks that I'm 
just mad at not being considered for DD or getting honours by making a 
couple of NMUs.  It must a problem with my communication skills then.  All 
right, sorry for all the inconveniences.

Cheers and bye.
