And that's why I actually mentioned in my reply to Sarah that "(in
fact, with Rafael it was at least partially just bad communication,
and I haven't had that issue with him before)", because I have this
distinct memory that we ended up having that exact discussion about
misunderstanding and bad wording at the time.

I react very strongly when somebody argues against fixing regressions.
Let's just say that there's too many years of baggage that I carry
around on that issue..

So that is definitely one of the things that make me go ballistic.
Buggy code isn't actually one of them. Bugs happen. Even really stupid
bugs happen, and happen to good people. They had a bad day, or it was
just a brainfart. Not that I will be _polite_ about bad code, mind
you, and there might be some bad words in there, but it doesn't make
me blow up.

Being cavalier about known regressions is definitely the primary
trigger. I suspect there are others, but I can't seem to recall any
other particular hot-button issues right now. Maybe Sarah can post a
few more pointers..
