I don't know if I need the attention you refer to, because I don't know what 
you refer to(but it doesn't matter anyway).

You, Aaron, and Kurt Pfeifle have explicitly expressed they don't like what I 
do. In case of numbers of developers who have explicitly expressed their 
opinions I can count to more people(kde-cvs, kde-core-devel) that have helped 
sorting issues out(if it's on that level). I don't really care about the 
practical matters in this part, I may be wrong/you/whatever, but what is 
worrying, and which halts solving those actual practical matters, is if 
previous projects are ignored, said to be deleted without explaining why, if 
people insults, and all the other communicative and bureaucratic problems 
outlined in the top mail.

But don't hesitate. If you think I've done wrong -- bring that proof -- and do 
a detailed discussion.
Also, Aaron statements may of course correspond to a common opinion among 
people on aKademy, but comments such as "I have no plans" does not to my 
judgment reflect that. It would also amaze me if people back up insults(or do 
people not find it that?). Individual opinions are concrete, but discussing 
whom the silence agrees with is though.
I'm sick of the attitude outlined in the initial mail, and I want that 
changed, and I want actual discussion about the practical matters.
