This user's perspective, having been affected by the previous issue:

1. There was a problem that needed fixed.		Agree.

2. Something was done to fix it.			=:^)

3. Now it's going a bit far (publicly, at least).	Also Agree.

If there had been even a single question on anyone else's commits during 
this period, it'd arguably be different.  But just as the previous had 
gotten a bit ridiculous and a course correction was needed, so here as 
well.

I certainly have to respect him for sticking with it in the face of 
opposition... in both instances.
