Yw for the pizza.
Yes -- pizza is lyfe.
As to your attempt to be 'funny' on Twatter, and to say I told you that it
was 'easy' and I demanded that it be done 'quick' or something of the
sort, dear God.
I suggest you go back through my comment to you and see where I stated it
was 'easy' and demanded it be done right away. You won't be able to find
such a thing -- because that's your emotional impression of it. I never
said what you do is either easy nor did I demand an immediate resolution
of this issue.
Your troll-y response was an admirable attempt, but it fell short of
As to the remarkable ability of everyone on the interwebs to talk about
these ridiculous things -- hey, guess what? I got you to pay attention to
an actual need, something that you as lead developer and others have
ignored for years. YEARS.
Do you realize this was 'abandoned' so to speak...because you and others
thought it was irrelevant?
It's not 'irrelevant' or whatever else you choose to view it as. But it
was shoved aside and ignored. Meanwhile, although it does not keep the
whole project from functioning, it is a hindrance to thousands of
websites, even millions, that need this issue to be resolved.
To then close this ticket on a false premise (that it wasn't needed or
important) and then put the onus on others to 'step up and contribute' or
whatever is not only non-productive, it diminishes the needs of the
community. It's an off-handed way to say, 'well, we weren't willing to
solve it...it's not *our* problem!' when it most assuredly is. It's your
responsibility, not ours.
Harsh? Cold? Possibly, to state it that way.
I'm aware it is not 'easy' to fix something like this. I am also aware
that it is not something that would ever be done in a day. For you to
paint myself and anyone else as demanding, or...hell, 'delusional' is a
broad brush, dipped in ignorance at best.
Which of course sums up nicely the attitude upon which this ticket was
originally set aside, ignored for years and eventually closed.
I hold no illusions that you and I will ever sit down together and share a
pizza. But I will say this: if you trumpet 'community' and 'working
together' and 'respect' so often, when someone in that same community
comes to you, opens a ticket...and then you ignore their needs for years
-- then close it with on the note of, 'well, fixing our product is not OUR
responsibility -- it's YOURS!' -- don't be surprised when others take that
as disrespecting them. Because that's exactly what you did. That was a,
well...it really was a giant middle finger to the community to put it all
on us to fix. It's your product; we asked you nicely to fix it, and you
didn't. For years. And insulted the entire community when you closed it.
The jokes about pizza, though, were nice.
Oh wait, those were my jokes.
Edit: the joke I got to make about pizza was nice.
Takeaway (not the pizza kind): if you want to be treated with respect,
then treat others with respect. If you want people to respect your time
don't waste theirs.
Thanks again for the notoriety.
P.S.: so, where DID that $51,500 bucks go towards, that you raised on
IndieGoGo...that was supposed to go towards all that developin'...? Lots
of Starbucks mocha soy lattes, I assume?
And how much of that $51,500 do I get for like, you know, owning this
task? Do I get paid in pizza?
P.P.S.: awww, maaan -- that ticket title was like, epic and stuff, too bad
you changed it. So sad.
