You mean you didn't mention that I drafted a much better one over two
years ago?

And you felt this API was worth mentioning?

My criticism is spot-on and appropriate. Cursory, dismissive and
thoughtless replies are as inappropriate and counterproductive as
flippant messages I'm seeing in my inbox. And I'm not about to be
pigeonholed or scapegoated into being the bad guy here. Make sense?
