1 This shows the problem with Comrel, and how they approach people. Completely
2 impolite, not showing any courtesy or respect.
4 Nothing polite, no "Hello", "Hi how are you". "How is your day going", "please
5 consider the following request". Nothing to start off on a positive note. Just
6 jumping in with negativity... There are MANY better ways to go about such.
8 I am pretty sure all cultures tell you to great someone, beyond saying their
9 name. There is no way such an email would not be received with the same
10 hostility it was composed with....

18 Plural? Implying my activity on -dev not just -project... Interesting...

25 Are you really asking me or telling me? Seems like a threat given the rest.
27 > Our code of conduct specifically cites as unacceptable behaviour
29 I know you and others are itching to find a way to enforce the CoC, ban me,
30 drive me away etc. That has been quite apparent.

37 Thank you for passing judgement on my emails as being pointless. A direct
38 violation of the CoC by the lead of Comrel. There are other more polite and
39 political correct ways of stating what you just did.

44 That happened on accident, as I clearly stated. I was not sure what happened,
45 thus I did it a 2nd time, and NOT any further. Those comments are out line...
46 Accusing me as if I intentionally did it. I have already filed 2 upstream bugs
47 as a result....

51 Maybe take your own advice? Oh wait I forgot your comrel, it does not matter
52 how you conduct yourself.
54 > Please acknowledge this e-mail.
56 Acknowledged publicly....
