yes i read this threat very often and i can't believe this shit...
this man believes he is a 'hero' he believes he can do it better!
the hole FGLRX/catalyst team can't do it better over my last 3-4 ati-linux years now-
the open-source driver runs like a dream !
like a Switzerland-clock (and the fglrx not!)
and this 'Guy' talk about release a driver or step aside...
the FGLRX team release a driver every 30 days and every 30 days the driver is shit again!

I think the temporary ban was completely warranted. I say this having never replied to one of his posts.
Maybe to people who don't speak English as a first language, he might not seem that bad. The fact is, however, that the wording in all of his posts was rude and abrasive. He didn't say all that much that was directly and literally offensive, but the nuance was always there in every post.
If a person is simply rude or antisocial, it shows more. In his case, he was deliberately trying to ruffle feathers. His choice of words were slyly chosen, and I feel intended only to ruffle feathers.

Sorry of little OT here but...

I, for example have two R3xx graphic cards and my motherboard BIOS initializes only one card at boot time and now I've upgraded Kubuntu to 10.04 with KMS... I might be wrong with thinking, but... everything works great with first card on KMS and second with UMS (second X-server started from KDM). So I wonder how long configurations like mine will be supported?

Have to agree here. Since the very first lines of the first post, the thread was meant to be aggressive and demeaning. The ban was warranted, and shouldn't be lifted just because people like the drama.

As I said earlier, ignoring that guy would probably solve the issue. Additionally, the thread could have simply been closed
It wasn't about any technical thing but just a quite rude demand of a(n) (upset) person.
This is an unfortunate issue that this all went kind of out of control.
IMHO banning should really be the very very last possibility to act against somebody.
OK, I don't know what he said in those PMs and of course I believe everybody that this is really annoying.
I would suggest to lift this ban now. I think everybody had enough time to calm down about this thread.

While I very much disagree with how gordboy presented it, I do agree with his main point.
A full year without a proper release is not how a package should be handled. Definitely not a driver.

They didn't go a full year without a proper release, just a full year between the non-KMS release and the KMS one (during which the kernel side was being nailed down as well). They were making 6.12.x releases in the interim.

The thing is a guy that doesn't pay developers for their work has no right to demand anything. This is not a ******* charity.

I think he was barking up the wrong tree but he did come up with some truly excellent verbiage. Offensive perhaps, but very entertaining.
