Sebastian, you've failed to notice an important point that others have already tried to convey to you - #gentoo-infra is the home of the Gentoo infra team. Yes, developers go there to address infra issues on Gentoo, but it is the infra team channel and not the channel of every Gentoo developer. Furthermore, the fact you consider it insulting, doesn't make it necessarily insulting. Also that tone was used between other developers who know each other very well and wasn't directed at you. You acted like you were entitled to set rules for behaviour in another team's channel. It must not surprise you if the people there weren't too pleased or impressed.

That is your opinion and a perfectly reasonable one. It doesn't mean everyone shares your opinion or that everyone agrees with your proposals to address that problem.
