But I honestly don't care how you _feel_ about a bug.
There's a defect. It's a fact. The only way to change it is to work on
fixing it. Feelings have nothing to do with it.

It doesn't matter how polite or gentle you describe a malfunction. It is
and will be a bug. There's no place for emotions when you wish to work
with plain boring facts.

And again, I do not care how _you_ feel about it. Actually I don't have
any preference or emotional connection to most packages. All I care
about is that they (1) install properly out of the box and (2) work
reasonably. So if I have to file eleventy dozen bugs for packages you
maintain ... your fault. Don't leave such a mess. Stop whining and fix
those issues.

Yeah, maybe that's insensitive. Maybe I'm a bit rude. But it'll make you
focus more on doing things properly so I don't even have to bother you
in the first place :) And if everyone does a good job it'll be more
awesome for all of us.
