I've been speaking to Laszlo over the past month and the impression that I get is that he really doesn't understand boundaries when it comes to communication. This can become extremely frustrating for the person he is talking to.
When we first started talking, he asked me about many past TUs, and about the reasons they quit, etc. I wondered why he wouldn't speak to them directly instead of bothering me with such questions.
There has been multiple times that he has asked me for solutions to very trivial problems. To make things worse, in one instance, he would shoot down every one of my offered solutions.
Instead of choosing the most relevant route of communication, he will choose the method that he believes will give him the fastest response, no matter if it may cause disruption.
Example: He asks the same question to some of us directly via Jabber rather than asking in an IRC channel (which we are all present in), even after being asked to stop.
Example: He would contact me directly about something on the mailing list that I had no involvement in, rather than sending an email to that mailing list.
He has recently become extremely annoying.
His application does look impeccable though. It's partly the result of lots of feedback from me, and probably other Trusted Users.
I don't know if this should be a barrier to becoming a Trusted User, but the fact is that I'm wary about working with him, and I can imagine that other users might feel the same way.
I admire Laszlo's enthusiasm, and respect his goals but I don't think he would be a good candidate for a Trusted User right now.
I don't vote on TU matters anymore, but I totally agree with you.
Oh, so i'm not the only one who is annoyed by the 'invasive' communication style...
