As a complete newcomer to this list, seeing a fairly well-written message 
responded to in such an arrogant and, frankly, idiotic manner does not reflect 
well upon this project.

"There are decades of history here of which you are clearly unaware."
"No.  You truly have no idea."

Was your intent to sound like a know-it-all hipster? If not, reconsider your 
approach. If so, SERIOUSLY reconsider your approach.

Michelle has a point. I submitted a PR on a port and waited TWO YEARS to be 
told "your patch is in the wrong form." There are reasonable and realistic 
criticisms that demand reasonable responses. Dag, your response fell FAR short 
in the reasonableness test.
