Thanks, Martin, for taking the conversation offline to be a real jerk. ;)

I was looking for guidance as to what to do.

This common response really pisses me off.  It's unclear exactly what
code needs to be written.

PyPI is fucking down all the time you nincompoop.

So, turn away help, because we can all go to hell.  I've seen a
problem for a year and I joined the catalog-sig for other reasons, but
find that people ask questions which aren't answered.

Your attitude is very much like a senior employee who is about to get
fired for being unpalatable.

But you can't be fired by the community, so you'll continue to reign
and noone should offer to help because someone you thought would help
in the past didn't.

Like most people in all general e-mail communication of the world, you
didn't read the thread closely enough to determine who said what.

I responded to a proposal by someone who you completely ignored.

I can see what is wrong with PyPI, Martin.  I think it's painfully clear.

Anyway, I won't offer to help ever again, promise.  I'll just complain
until you fix things.

Peace, Love, and Go to Hell.
