Only slight offense intended here.
I've read the page in question, as well as this thread. There is this thing called personal opinion, and free speech. There is also this other thing called respect.
Irregarless of how great you or other think your code/repository is, no one has the right to stomp in and start b**chslapping monks around and flaming. I have massive respect for merlyn or tye, who have been around the block a bit more than most I would guess. Why do you ask, because even if they know the intracacies of whatever piece of a problem space I may be having an issue with, I have yet to see them once state to someone else that they are stupid, dumb, ignorant, etc..
The reason this particular community is so great is directly related to that. Not that an advanced monk knows more, and keeps the little guys down, but rather that they are always willing to help and pull up the next saint-to-be. This whole community works because people "RESPECT" each other as developers and as human beings, instead of defining the relationship as someone at the far end of a text box.
So you can keep your code, your respository, and your opinions to yourself if the only way you can manage to talk is flaming. If you can manage to communicate like an adult about the timeframe your article was posted, what the 'net was like at that point, the fact that the page was part of a larger article, and what you were trying to get across, you might actually get decent feedback.
Thank you very much and find another URL
