How to piss off a Linux kernel subsystem maintainer - part 6

Sixth in a long series of complaints... See part 1 and part 2 and part 3 and part 4 and part 5 for previous atrocities.

There's nothing like waking up and receiving in your inbox, a few scant hours after the merge window has opened up again, a plea for why you haven't already reviewed and applied all 117+ patches that the author sent to you a few weeks ago, back when they well knew you could not apply them due to the merge window being closed.

Oh, and to top it all off, as the message was sent in HTML format, it didn't hit the mailing lists, I was the only one who received it. Because of that, I figured it was better if I just ignored it as well, just like the vger.kernel.org filters did.

I think I'll just ignore this whole set of patches until after LinuxCon Vancouver which should give me enough time to cool off.

This message brought to you by your favorite convicted monopolist.
