I know I'm wasting time.

Here something longer.

The clauses weren't about breaking rules alone but keeping a sane
behaviour and refrain from having double standards.

the "proposed patch" came attached with a request to bend the rules.
That alone made him demoted in my eyes and in the eyes of many.

How the whole situation evolved to the worst and the current disparaging
of others contribution makes me even more convinced that this change is
the best for the project and that it should had to happen way before.
