I never said that I consider this patch wrong, I was just pointing out 
that it
would have been more friendly, in regard to the ongoing discussion about 
topic, to send it to the ML and maybe point out that you only intend it 
a temporary solution until a better one is found.
That would have been much more respectful in regard to the work done by 
By just pushing this, one could easily get the impression that you did 
not care
about Filips opinion, that this should not be solved the way it is done 
by this

I don't despise you, I just don't always agree with how you 
on the ML, trac and IRC, sometimes. And I think I have the right to 
point that
out, in cases where it's obvious but you do not seem to notice yourself.

I have the opinion that it is important to treat other people and their 
work with

And I think your behavior sometimes is intolerable,
just to give an example for this:

Whenever someone breaks the build you complain and nearly immediately 
or even force- push the changes away. It is not like people break the 
just to annoy you, you know?

On top of that, you break the build frequently too.

In the last case I remember, even knowingly with your tls module 
changes. Even
though it only affected macOS, it was annoying and unnecessary. You 
could have
sent the patches to the ML and asked one of the macOS devs to fix the ST 
to work with your changes, in case you do not want/can't easily do the 
changes yourself.
