No, I was referring to you and you alone.
You've been more insulting towards the people who do hard work and submit
patches by going out of your way to block them and saying "The burden of
proof is on you!". And by saying this you're basically not even wanting to
review anything - you'd rather be spoonfed some facts than look at the
code, figure out what it does, what it changes and seeing whether it's
doing what its meant to do or not.
If you want to be taken seriously and not be seen as someone as insulting
as you think I was here then you should provide constructive criticism, use
quotes, provide some information where you think there's an issue and
finally propose an alternative. So far you've only done "I don't like this
API and I can't be convinced otherwise!" and act surprised when your
rhetoric to revert everything was criticized. Meanwhile mfcc64 provided all
I just said and michaelni provided objective testing, so don't even compare
yourself to them.
Instead, why don't you send a patch or even a WIP of what you think ought
to be done to the API?
