so does Thomas and Jes. So what's the point?

i judge LTT by its current code quality, not by its proponents shouting
volume - and that quality is still quite poor at the moment. (and then
there are the conceptual problems too, outlined numerous times) I have
quoted specific example(s) for that in this thread. Furthermore, LTT
does this:

246 files changed, 26207 insertions(+), 71 deletions(-)

and this gives me the shivers, for all the reasons i outlined.
