you're confusing talk and jokes between developers on a particular
private room with tone between members of the global community in public
You're also missing an important point that some channels have their own
environment and so one should start by understanding it. Furthermore,
pushing for change and or imposing one's view on an established channel
is not a "nice" way to deal with the residents of that channel.
Another thing you've just done and should be aware of, is that you chose
to air into the public private conservations. When any Gentoo developer
decides to reveal a private discussion in the core ml or some other
private medium into the general public without the other parties
knowledge and or consent, that developer is abusing the other members'
You have shown to be very attached to this topic, so much so that you've
just blown this completely out of proportion. There was no "foul play"
intended in that conservation nor was there any abusive tone between the
involved parties. It may have sounded that way to you, but there was no
doubt for the involved parties.
Please consider that some of the developers in this distribution have
known each other for years and have their own communication code and
style. Don't be too quick judging the other people and as others have
said in this thread, assume others to have the best possible intention
in their messages, until proven otherwise.
