Like 'I like offending people, because I think people who get offended
should be offended.' ?
I'm not that guy, relax.

That's not true.

If your code is written using ancient style and / or API it's not good
to start with.
Isn't it? Otherwise, why we do introduce new internal APIs, for what purpose?

On top of that you might find more interesting reviews where I pointed
out to a memory leak or other nasty stuff. But of course you prefer
not to norice that.
I understand you.

Calm down, please.
You would simple ignore them. Your choice.

But okay, I would try to avoid your stuff to make you happier. Sorry
for disturbing.

>> Ditto.

In these two comments I'm indeed wrong.

With Best Regards,
