Um, I kept bugging them. In the CB, in the dev wiki and in private messages. Until they hated me, or at least that was how it felt anyway. :-)

If I may be so bold as to address the implicit comment in here, the main reason why some of your patches havent yet been applied (by me) is simply that when I've been around to do so you havent, and apparently vice versa. And frankly sometimes getting feedback from you via the CB about what is going on takes a long time (are you on a slow dial up maybe?) Anyway. I see you in the CB now, so perhaps we can take care of some patches eh?

    Not a slow dial up, my brain is just a lot slower than that of normal people and doesn't work well in real time. I do understand the points you make in the OP, I just thought it would be interesting to compare your viewpoints pre and post godhood :)

    Also, it sometimes seems that the burden of applying patches falls unevenly on yourself; /me wonders why?

      We all do our piece as time and availability allow I guess. Also part of the reason I was made a god was to make the patch application process more lively, so I guess its sort of my job. Anyway, ysth was made a god recently so now that there are three of us (tye applies patches too) who are actively applying patches to the site. Hopefully things will be more reactive going into the future.

[erix]: well, I hope you're right
[Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
[Your Mother]: (I certainly did not vote for him and have been an outspoken critic of his for three decades, by the by.)
[erix]: I'd like Russia threatened a bit more, flattered a bit less
[Your Mother]: The last two regimes killed a million, displaced 10 million, torture prisons, and ruined countries… somehow it's magically bad _now_.
[erix]: what/who are the last two regimes?
[Your Mother]: Bush/Obama. 15 straight years of warfare, torture, etc, etc.
[Your Mother]: All caused by the political fallout of Carter/Reagan when the Afghan chickens came home to roost on 9/11.
[Your Mother]: US foreign policy is toxic and like a broken record.
