No!  This is a lame excuse.  The developer chose to respond to it.  He
could just have ignored that post.  He is not required to give any answer.
 The developer *chose* to waste time giving a completely useless response.
 He could rather have looked another way and continued doing something
else, which would be more productive in this case.

To be honest, I dislike the attitude of some CentOS developers, basically
telling people to f*** off whenever a nerve is hit.  If there was another
CentOS alternative which stays as close to RHEL as CentOS does, I would

developers are not gods who can do whatever they like just because of their

And if developers complains about lack of community help ... maybe they
should look a little bit closer on how they treat the community first.
