And just to make it clear, I didn't deny you are the only one with
commit access, and therefore you make all the shots. You made a
decision, fine, I never said you can't do that.

What I said is that you should not use words to imply that your
*opinion* is a fact. The fact that you make a decision doesn't make
your opinion a fact, and the fact that many people share your opinion
doesn't make it a fact either.

So, instead of saying:

"Just one side being right, and the other side continuing to repeat
nonsense without listening."

You should say:

"Simply a matter of disagreement where the code belongs."
