Sorry, that amounts to twisting my words. An attitude is a general way of
approaching things and I meant it in a positive way.

I haven't read the flame you're alluding to, but an occasional flame is NOT
the defining characteristic of a person.

On the contrary, on the bug-tracker Antoine has been most helpful,
responsive and welcoming towards newcomers.

It would be a great loss if he really stops and I hope he'll reconsider.
