It's normal for developers working on high-profile projects to have "loads of open/stuck bugs" assigned to them.
While I think we should all strive to be polite, I suspect the proportion of developers that have been a little brusque with someone in private email is also pretty high.
Also, to drift more off-topic: please keep comments on any bug report focused on information that makes progress towards fixing the bug. It's not the place for opinions on the general quality of the project or the bug assignee; if your goal is to criticize either, a narrow focus on the technical issue at hand would be a more effective way to do that. Similarly, you'd make a more convincing advertisement for the competing project by sticking to specific technical information found by that project's developers, and omitting broad claims about the competitor's kernel team being "world-class" or CentOS being "crap".
