When did I accuse everyone?@!
And have I not made my point clear? This isn't just this particular commit.
You look back at the log what do you see! All he does is do cosmetic 
stuffs fixed absolutely no bug since 0.9 ...
Ok you have a valid point been he does quote the guy who wrote the patch.
Look for one's kindness to send a patch you honor him for whatever good 
he has done! And stopping been a slacker.
If it's gonna be like this then what's the damn point of the Author line 
in the git log.
So please stop defending him.
