Please check your statements, lxde is by no mean a fork of xfce, the
code is not related to xfce code afaict, according the the AUTHORS
files of the released packages:

    GPicView (image Viewer): Seems to be new code
    GtkNetCat (GUI for netcat): New code
    LXAppearance: New code
    lxde-common (default config): New code, uses MIT licensed source
code from gnome-settings-daemon
    LXLauncher (for Asus EeePC): New code, portions from guification
plugin of gaim/pidgin and a widget taken from libexo
    LXNM (network manager): New code
    LXPanel (desktop panel): based on fbpanel and fspanel
    LXRandR (monitor config tool): new code
    LXSession Lite session manager: session manager is based on XSM by
The Open Group, with HAL support of lxsession-logout is taken from
    LXSession (session manager)  : Idem
    LXTask (task manager): LXTask is derived from Xfce4 Task Manager
    LXTerminal (terminal emulator): New code

So beside XFce Task manager (and I don't even know what it is), and
some portions of xfce session, thre is not much is common with xfce.

I think your emails contain way too many direct personal attacks and
false statements, not to mention the general tone which make them look
like more like a troll than any grown up, technically founded
discussion. And then you complain of the answers you get on the
mailing list.

Sorry, but as far as I am concerned, this thread is over.
