I was implyeplying to your arguments. If you didn't want that, why write
your mail in the first place? This list is not an empty room - if you
write mail, you should expect the possibility of a reply.

Sorry, but this is obviously not true. While it actually started that way,
and my reply was to fix the discrepancy you pointed out (and tell you so),
you continued arguing with flawed arguments. I tried to explain why your
arguments where wrong. That's all.

If you have trouble with people pointing out the flaws in your argument, you
shouldn't argue in the first place.

If you had done what you claim you did (merely pointing out..) then this
obviously wouldn't have happened, right?

There was never disagreement over this - my very first reply clearly
stated that these discrepancies are bugs in the manual, rather than the
code, if you remember. And the manual was promptly fixed each time, was it

However, you clearly _did_ argue for a lot of code/semantics changes.

I really wonder now whether you are the same Konstantin Osipov who wrote
all these mails that you claim you didn't write. Claiming you "merely
pointed out a discrepancy" borders on schizophrenia - you clearly wrote
multiple mails with lots of content, didn't you?

If you really only wrote the parts pointing out some discrepancies, then
you should check your e-mail account security - somebody else wrote a lot
more mails than you seem to remember, and all in your name.
