Please, enough with the comments on vitriol. Those comments deemed so have been adequately removed, and we are all trying to move forward to an amicable solution.My point is the responses started vitriolic, and seemed to have remained so. That's not what the 'summary' I quoted would have you believe.
Staff members consistently responding that such vitriol isn't possible to engage with constructively is a lot more reasonable in that context.
There's little point engaging materially with the demands of someone who vitriollically insists you are part of some unreasonable conspiracy against them, because they've just demonstrated they don't wish to engage constructively.
Volunteers who have limited time doing their best in good faith don't really have time to waste it like that. Nor is it reasonable to expect.
While the summary (supposed vitriol aside) accurately states the crux of this post in that data shows what happened to VC yet the project refuses to justify it an acceptable manner, and by bringing up the past in a vitriol sense has no bearing on what we’re discussing nor will it help anything or anybody.
Please, again, I beg for civility.
I'd be happy to explain what I understand of the process a bit better as I have time. But if the aim of the people I'm explaining it to seems to be only to find fault with it in order to support some pre-concieved (and IMHO very likely mistaken) conclusion they've already come to, that would seem to be a waste of time. Because at the end they'll just think what they already think anyway, and nothing will change (especially as I think the project will not make further changes to this update at this point, which is what you seem to be aiming at).
Like, if you really think the project has got it in for you for some unknown to me reason, you won't credit anything I say anyway, so what's the point. Especially since it's a non trivial amount of work to trace back individual changes that had multiple points of input let alone the whole. if you're just gonna tell us it must be because we hate you, end of story that's a big waste of time. Does that make sense?
