The patch itself and your attitude showed me that you do not want your
patches to be reviewed. I decided that I won't go further as I indicated

Of course it was crappy. By doing your homework you save not only my
but also others' people time. Come on, a patch should at least apply if
not anything else.

Yeah ? Please, explain it to me - why you call yourself a MC developer ?
Why you always speak of a friendly and positive environment when you
fail to realize that it is important to take the work of others seriously
and not just ignore it ? Why don't you step out ?

call themselves developers but neither of them can be relied upon for
anything related to the project.
