Read Cyrano:

	Je me les sers à moi-même avec assez de verve
	Mais je ne permets pas qu'un autre me les serve.

(Get a translation if you do not know it already.)

And the insulting part was not just calling them hack but affirming that
"shouldn't have been done at all", i.e. calling my work useless.

This is a lie. As I have just explained, and therefore you just read, I have
made very sure that it was not the case: the hacks can be very easily
removed, I have made sure of that.

Yes, you do. Otherwise, you would avoid inflammatory language like in the
previous paragraph.

So please stop. Stop disparaging other people's work, stop spitting in the
soup, strop being altogether rude.

EOT for me, sorry Paul.
