There were purely mundane technical objections to the build system for your 
fuzz tester by at least three different developers (Marvin, Hugo and myself).

I also stated my opinion that the fuzzer would be best not published. I had 
kept my fuzzer private for 8 months by that point. But in the mean time, you 
had already made that opinion moot by publishing yours, thus showing anybody 
how to efficiently fuzz VLC demuxers.

In addition, I explicitly solicited third opinions. J-B declined to comment, 
and nobody else commented at all. Then I sent my fuzzer for review privately, 
and got no feedback whatsoever. Only after I finally published the fuzzer over 
two months later did I get any (negative) opinion from Hugo and Thomas. Rather 
late if I may say.

This is the second time you disparage me on this mailing list in a season. And 
now you are essentially accusing me of lying. With nothing to back it up, this 
amounts to slander.

Unlike you, I am not paid for that work, nor am I paid to review. I really 
have better things to do with my free time than to deal with this.

So I will ignore you from now on.
