Thank you blackace.

If you feel this isn't worth your time then please find another topic to
respond to and let this one carry on as others see fit; as I'm not the only
one discussing this it must be viewed as worth other people's time. Please
stop telling others what is or isn't a big deal to them or what you say they
should find to be productive. The discussion is worthwhile to me, I want to
understand the reasoning behind the new rule. I may not agree to it and I
can accept that, but it is entirely within my right to ask for
clarification.

Kindly leave the personal stuff out of this.

Kindly leave the personal stuff out of this and not assume what I did or did
not contribute to. Anyone could easily look up and confirm that I started
contributing quite regularly since mid 2006 and after officially joining in
2007 my focus shifted.

And like every other person (developer, user, etc) you too are bound to CoC
so speak your mind clearly while adhering to the same principles that others
do. If fuzzy, please review:
