This is good. Seriously, this is good. I'm happy to see you on IRC,
and it's good to see you talk. Please keep doing it, contribute to
technical discussions and so on - that's what we try to do there (plus
a lot of random chatter, ignore it if you don't like it).

We did call you. We told you to fix things up with Mans. That didn't go well.

Please read this:
- you are power-drunk
- we don't want you as BDFL
- you are delirious
- I'm not the only one that feels this way

Our solution right now is to move on without you. I'd prefer if you
changed your ways. I 100% support what Jason just said.
