well "A as well as not A is ok" is covered in so far as neither A nor !A is
required by the policy.

I agree that my words where poorly choosen and unneccessarily inflamatory.
Its just that i dont want to spend more time writing politically correct
statements than i spend writing code.
Its a big issue recently (year) in ffmpeg, bikesheds and politics take too much
time for me.
Also having to explain every change i do to my own code overly elaborately
to everyone takes a lot of time. I tried to do that when some developer
wanted to know it. but being kicked out of all positions i had without any
solid reason, i dont feel like spending my time awnsering questions that
come from the people who kicked me out.
