Also, your English is puzzling O.o

Suggest to read again, just because I mentioned "stupid" doesn't mean it was about a person.

In my view, you're mostly getting personal while ignoring any argument.

Hope you also make some progress on the hypo- quiz thingie.
And finally, I'm not "suggesting" your English is not good:
"What you quoted is and was not a personal insult." sounds like bad English to me.
"I know it are my words" is definitely bad English. Period.

Complaining about someones English and all the other behaviour you've displayed here is pathetic while trying to complain about my behaviour. I've asked for details, instead you show this kind of behaviour.
Get lost, really.

But of course that didn't happen: God forbid that you might admit being wrong! I guess you might be the kind of person who says "look where you're going!" when you bump into someone. No, I won't come pay a visit to you at FOSDEM: my attitude might be different indeed, but it's yours that it's at fault here.
I'm afraid the current problem with GNOME development it's not technical, and it's not political either: it's just that the wrong people are doing it. You're back at the starting point of the open source movement: you're scratching your personal itches, so to speak, only you're disguising that using words like "vision", "brand", and so on. The technical regressions in GNOME 3 are just a symptom of the psychological regression and detachment from the GNOME community by the current developers.
I almost felt sorry for you guys when reading the heavy trolling in this thread, but not anymore, you reap what you sow after all. I will be back to GNOME when you either grow up (in all senses), or a new generation of developers will take your place.
So long and thanks for GNOME 2.x (if you had any part in it).

Where you complain that I personally insulted someone. It was not a personal insult, nor meant as one.
I don't care at all about "brand" and all the other stuff you're adding to this. Seems you're getting very emotional and personal for no good reason.
"No need for stupid sarcasm, thanks."
Was NOT intended as a personal insult. It also is NOT a personal insult. If you read it as such, I did NOT mean it that way.
In any case, you continuous behaviour (condescending, getting personal, and psyco analysis of me as well as other GNOME developers): Rich to complain about me taking the high ground.
Noticed you never replied the times I stated I did NOT an personal insult. Also, you seem to have ignored my request to go to FOSDEM.
Trying to be constructive here and understand, but even if I was wrong somewhere, you're not making things any clearer for me with this kind of conversation style.
This is going nowhere, so this is the last I'm going to say.
perhaps my opportunity to be flamed ...but
