I agree with everything David said about this.  My personal opinion is
that you've done great work on the tracker, and like a few others, I've
"rediscovered" a few issues I wanted to fix thanks to your "stirring up
the silt".  I don't think you have reason to be offended by criticism
(which was even pointed out to you as such).  Try hanging around a little
bit longer, take nothing too seriously, and see if you still get nothing
of value from #python-dev.

Sure, and if it was work time, we probably would do this ;).  As it is
right now, this is volunteer time, and I would say that we're entitled
to do whatever helps us getting done the (not always exciting) work,
and our IRC crap talk, if that's what it is, happens to be among that.
