The double standard might not come from you, perhaps you subject all
the patches you review to the same standard, it comes from the fact
that the patches you review have an unfair disadvantage.

You don't persecute me, you persecute my patches. I could almost
picture the moment you see a patch is coming from me, you have already
decided to rewrite the commit message, even before reading it. Antoine
is not me, so you simply didn't review that patch.

This comment was directed towards Junio, I do hope he is able to see
the double standard. As for you, I think your reviews have value, but
I also think you dwelling in irrelevant details do slow things down,
which is not too bad, what is bad is that you assume that your
opinions are facts (e.g. the commit message need to be bigger), and
get angry when somebody disagrees with them.
