Did it ever occur to you that there might be a third reason for people
not liking you?
During Guadec2, you wanted ever single program reprinted to say
"GNU/Linux", when the FSF didn't give one penny for the organisation of
the conference. You also took the developers hostage to talk to us about
things we already knew (software freedom... man, we were *already* free
software developers), and to do feature requests (tell bugzilla not us)
about a product you obviously didn't know.
I hope the members of the foundation will understand that you're not an
easy person to work with. </understatement>
PS: I also remember you depriving 2 developers of Beer to talk to them
about multimedia, outside the pub. That's outrageous.
