I hadn't lost the context, but thanks for a pointer.

Unfortunately Felipe's summary is incomplete.

My message was meant as something that could be made into a reference
for when similar questions of netiquette come up in the future (as for
example they do all the time with Felipe).  That meant I didn't give
as good advice for your particular case than I should have.

For this particular case, my thoughts are:

If you believe those patches should be applied, please re-send them
with a summary of changes you've made (if any) and your opinion on
any unaddressed comments from the review thread.

If you believe those patches should not be applied, wouldn't it be
better to reply to that thread to help in case someone wants to pick
up the patches and fix them?

On the other hand if you just want to blow off steam, I guess that's
fine too.  Just don't expect it to result in any patches being
applied, code quality improving, etc.
