This project is the result of people's willingness to help. That is a fact.

I'm trying to figure out how to deal with your attacks and outbursts but
frankly so far I'm only seeing noise that won't go anywhere.

Yes you repeat the same facts while we try to explain what the problems
were/are that we have tried to solve.

I'm not seeing that you're accepting those reasons or those problems. Thus, to
me, it seems you haven't understood what this discussion is about in our (mine
at least) camp.

You're also rude in every response and throw accusations and insults at us,
which might make us slightly less friendly in our responses. At least I know I
tend to react that way, even though I try not to.

You have not yet provided a solution to the problem I've explained. Or if you
did I missed it and I'm sorry.
