huh, that wasn't sarcastic at all. a slight irony, sure. and the message
arrived ... kinda.

eh? i thought i said the opposite ...
anyway, i'm not complaining about maco - neither his initial patch
(which - i assume - was rather non-discriminative simply to get
something started efficiently) nor the followup discussion on irc
indicated any problem. my issue was solely with seele, who didn't live
up to my expectations. tough luck. shit happens.

i wasn't sarcastic here at all. it was a sincere expression of
disappointment. that's what i meant with "i fail to come up with an
interpretation which would be actually to her advantage". sure, i
certainly might have too high expectations, but that's what i apply to
myself, and i'm not as arrogant as to expect any lesser from others
(watch the closing scenes of "dog town" if the logic behind this doesn't
seem obvious to you).
