You should know that better than anyone else!

You still claim to be my friend, yet you said and did things
that i have not seen from my enemies, let alone from my friends.
To this day, after 3 years, i still get accused by random people
of thing i supposedly have done against FFmpeg and the spirit
of open source. After 3 years i still have to defend myself against

once again. Drink beer, hot chocolate and have fun together.
