Clearly not based on your attacks on me.

Thus far today, you're the only one who has poisoned anything, and
you're choosing to waste your own time attacking multiple users who
are attempting to provide feedback.

At no time did I insist my way was right, nor did I demand changes or
new options.  And for the record, I've likely been on this list before
you were even an XFCE developer, so no I'm not here to vent.

To refresh your memory, here's my original contribution to this thread:

No demands, no attacks, no poison. A simple comment, which went
ignored by the developers until your attack on me this morning.

I can also go and point out the other threads in which I've
contributed recently which have also failed to receive any response
from anyone.  The evidence indicates that all you seem interested in
doing is attacking anyone who doesn't agree with you, and ignoring
everyone else.

Its sad that XFCE has lost interest in its userbase if this is deemed
acceptable behavior.  I've been using XFCE for over 10 years, but
clearly no one cares about that.
