I'll say this, then, and leave it at that.

I raised technical and usability issues as I came across them. I don't
track the mailing list, so my apologies if people have had bad
experiences in the past, but that has nothing to do with me. What I
didn't expect in response was personal attacks directed at me. I
didn't expect to be sworn at, nor did I feel like I said or did
anything offensive enough to warrant it. If the shoe was on the other
foot, and I was swearing at the project founders and telling them they
were simply generating noise, I highly doubt it would have been
accepted as "just words." The response from Julian was disrespectful,
simple as that. I'm over it, but I disagree that it was just "words".
It was unprofessional for the project lead to respond in such a way.
Granted, others do the same (Theo is one example) but it doesn't make
it the right way to handle situations.
