To reiterate my position on this more clearly as I did on IRC: I don't
think it's OK to treat an applicant like this, regardless of the
applicant's behaviour. As for previous claims that "Konstantin's
attitude is a problem" or, that in a previous email one would not
"want to have to deal with [Konstantin] on the team", this thread has
shown the absolute opposite. Konstantin has reacted very
professionally to extreme, petty bikeshedding that completely
detracted from legitimate feedback; that's the kind of level-headed
attitude I do want to have on the team. I know what my vote will be.
