Even when I thought that could piss you off, I genuinely believed that 
would fall within the rules.

Now you suspended my account, and destroyed all my work on Arch.

But that was a less risky decision than keeping you around. Your purpose 
was never to enforce good practices but to boycott.

What you call quality standards won't allow me to reach my goals. You 
don't care about the contents of the book, you only care about how well 
it's written.
