Do i need to say more?

I guess i speak in the name of everyone related to libav, that
we would not mind if you kept saying that ffmpeg is better, faster,
has more features, etc. That could be at least discussed on a
technical, neutral level. What we mind are comments like that above,
targeted solely at insulting and slander individuals.
And as we can see from what Joe Neal wrote, the often repeated lie
becomes truth soon enough.

Actually, no. The whole thing started as getting Michael off his throne
and to stop him screwing the whole project. It was not ment to be
a fork.

I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in
the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous
even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being
superficial. It's a matter of joy in life.
