Funny story, they banned me now because they think I submitted this HN story. I didn’t, I came here way later.
Makes you think, doesn’t it? (The warnings refer to another bug a few months ago, where I tried to make another developer explain his removals, and good discussion and a full blog post resulted. All in all a good result. But still they said I was out of line because I named names)
Their attitude makes me want to switch to another desktop even more so that the software itself.
Didn't you accuse them of intentionally mixing up commits to make the changes hard to reverse? Calling that adding backstory is dishonest and the comment was entirely inappropriate.
(Sincere apologies if I am mis-attributing this comment to you.)
And then I overstepped and deduced that this may be assumed to be intentional, condering the backstory.
You might say that was inappropriate and I was banned with justification. But I’m a human too and this lack of proper communication frustrates me to no end. If the developer in question can be said to have a breaking point, I have one too.
None of this would have happened if the involved parties had a better standard of communication and of handling matters.
