    Sorry you're feeling picked on and under appreciated.

    It really doesn't matter to me by whom or how this came to be. More
    than once in my career, I have cleaned up some stuff, then out of
    curiosity gone back to see who might have written such crap -- only to
    discover it was I. I've learned to not ask such questions. Just keep
    on trying to make things better.

    We are working on a large and ever changing body of code with thousands
    of others active at any point. The opportunities for refinement and
    improvement are endless. Don't sweat how we got here; those who have
    done the most (such as yourself) probably have created the most
    "opportunities" for further refinment. Just judge each change on its
    current merits, and on whether it moves in the right long term
    directions.
