    Well, the problem is that someone actually went through the
    effort of doing the week-long reviews of your code, you flamed him
    every time he suggested that there was need for improvement, instead
    of saying thanks for all the hard work and implementing the needed
    fixes.

    Not exactly the right way to make people fond of reviewing your code.
    Getting flamed by someone having a hard time taking criticism
    after spending 5 minutes to review a patch is bearable, after all,
    what's 5 minutes, right? Flaming someone that has put down a week
    or two of hard work on review is just disrespectful.
