I think you're re-framing the timeline here, possibly showing that your
view of events was influenced by your view of me "trying to cause
trouble". I was told the forum is a separate entity which devs don't
read, hence it was pointless discussing this there. I've already said
why I sent to list after the bug report was closed.

I don't think I have been disrespectful to anyone in this entire
exchange, and have answered or responded to points raised during the
discussion. I made one tangential post in response to what seems to be
people's fears of posting.

But, point taken: I shall remember these events for future interactions.
