Yes, let's look at the patches that you sent that were rejected:
The first was one where you asked the PMS team to make a change that
goes directly against a Council decision, and that the PMS team does
not have the authority to accept on its own. You were told to bring
the issue to gentoo-dev@ for further attention. You never did.
The second patch you sent:
* incorrectly removed as "no content" two sentences that had specific
and necessary meaning.
* didn't apply against any version of PMS except your much-modified
local version, and that didn't make sense when applied to version of
PMS that anyone else had.
Again, no updated patch was sent.
The third patch you sent had a number of small issues and could have
been improved. You did not send an updated patch with those issues

Everyone on the PMS mailing list is more than welcome to do patch
reviews. The more eyes we have looking at things the better. Policy is
not to apply patches until everyone is happy with them; objections are
considered on their merits, not on their author.
Every other person who has had people comment upon a patch they
submitted has either addressed the issues and submitted an updated
patch, or explained why they feel the patch is correct as-is.
Every other person who has submitted a patch has worked with all the
reviewers to reach a conclusion that is acceptable to all involved.
Every other person has an ultimate patch acceptance rate of at least
98%. You are the *only* person to have had patches rejected where the
submitter did not agree with the rejection.
