This is just ridiculous. Although, I must say that I'm not much surprised. I seen Steven Seagal to be too sensitive about some comments about (partially) his SW.
And Steem site is still on: http://steem.atari.st/
Should talk here about Steem SSE site, just to be precise.
Now, I'm who got zillion times worse comments from diverse Atari people during last 12 years. By SS logic, I should leave this planet, at least
There was talk by some, by some people highly 'respected' crew boss about that I steal code, that my SW destroys user data. Such claim is still on their site, despite that it is not just complete unproven, but is absurd. Admin of great forum called my work 'nefarious' - while he talks that is my supporter
So, now I say:
Sadly, we have lot of bad behavior among Atari ST people. I can explain it mostly with what is people's motivation to do this online retro activity. It is just that many people wants attention, respect, fame, and like. And some really go over top in it. When I saw talk like: "Why you deal with it, when it is done best by crew XY ?" - now, that's utter stupidity. First, everyone has right to do it. More important is that there is never 'best' in SW, HW design. It always can be done better.
So, I admire SS for his work on Steem improving. I know that he was oriented about it before Steem sources were released, so was not surprise that he took it in regular improving over some 5 years. I even offered him WEB space in those times, but he refused with comment that don't want to be on my site because my bad reputation
Now, there is some justice in all this, isn't ? I mean, on what he based that my bad reputation ? On writings of some people, who wrote basically crap - as I already pointed on some. Steven, you really should grow up.
There is 2 kind of people: one thinking about moving to Mars after here becomes too bad, the others thinking about how to keep this planet habitable.
