actually, personally, I'm more irritated by the snide comments made
in an off-handish way such as "Well, if anyone was actually managing
things here" or "I would send mail to core but there's no point since

"I don't get paid enough to put up with that."

Some people do. Some people think no decision should be made unless
it has been completely dissected and examined to death on 5 mailing
