Snarky and nasty comments? How about this?

So what did I say?

That's a fact.

This is also a fact. You haven't provided a branch, you haven't reviewed
my implementation, you haven't tried it. You mentioned something about
testing the performance, but then retracted from it.
So, if you were planning to collaborate, now it would be a good time to

I'm just clarifying how I'm planning to spend my time, specifically if
you are not going to collaborate.
What is snarky and nasty about any of these comments? I'm simply asking
you if you are going to collaborate and how, because I don't see it,
and what I'm going to do.
You think that's snarkier than the comments above? Well, I disagree.
But I don't blame you when you are snarky, nor do I think I should.

Those who want to be insulted would get insulted. I asked
a simple question "are you going to collaborate?", if you find that
offensive, that's your right.

How did I ask you to throw away your work? I have asked multiple times
now for you to provide a branch so that we can take a look and try it.
I don't know of a better way to throw away code than to refuse to
provide it, which is what you have been doing. So, if anybody can be
blamed of trying to throw away code, it shouldn't be me.
I know you will find the previous statement offensive, but it happens to
be true. It is sad that you will concentrate on the statement, rather
than the fact, and instead of providing the branch (which will help
to avoid throwing away the code), and thus nullify the statement, you
choose to be offended and complain about how offended you are.
Well, I'm offended at how much you refuse to collaborate, and at how
much disdain you throw at my code, but I'm not going to complain about
me being offended; people get offended about all sorts of things. Why
is why there's no law against offending people.
Instead, I choose to do something positive about it and improve my code
with your criticism (e.g. lack of tests), even if that criticism is rude
and unwarranted. But that seems to mean nothing to you.

I guess that answers the question; you are not going to collaborate. Got
I will not ask you again for a branch with the remote-hg code.
