Maybe we have different cultures, but my impression is that who was
rude was him. Sending a mail saying "you bad, I good, do what I tell you"
is VERY rude where I come from. We don't want people here with those
comments. If you want to send patches, send them otherwise just shut up.

There are a lot of ways of thinking and we don't want to force anyone
to change their way of thinking, but please don'try to do the same with us,
or at least be polite. I talked with other developers and they also were

He did a really bad comment and he mistook in his conclusions. The objective
of comments in St code is not to explain how a terminal must work, there
are plenty of documents explaining that. Do you imagine the code of the
linux kernel full of comments explaining how an operating system must work?
Do you have comments in man pages explaining what is a file descriptor
in evey man page? You already have books for that.

If he had problems understanding something he could just ask, not
sending an arrrogant mail menacing others with the option of forking
the code. We don't want that here, if you like the code contribute,
if you don't like it contribute to do it better, but don't complain
if your patches are not accepted.
