It's not about me, but about what you are trying to do.

That is what I call FUD. I count a dozen thousand unique daily
visitors on ATrpms' master mirror and if one could get metrics from
the other mirrors there would be quite a huge number. So there are ~
15000 users with broken systems daily? Or are do they all belong to
the category "have been very lucky" as you write in bugzilla?

No, I won't accept that what you bugzilla'd had anything to do with
any of your technical insight on the matter (you never even used
ATrpms as you wrote, so you have no idea if there are issues, but
still "countless" users are consulting you).

You won't get away with trying to divert to technical matters,
now. I'm always for discussing technical stuff, perhaps too much for
some people, but this is about you spreading FUD against a fellow

Don't troll.
