It would be worth an order of magnitude more if you could also slip  
in a 'filter_arrogance_and_insults' right after the 'poke_morbus'.  
Then it might actually serve to help new developers get up to speed  
and contribute stuff that does meet drupal coding standards, instead  
of communicating "you don't know squat and your contributions are  
worthless, get lost!"

So, if nobody else will say it, I will ... Sam, I'm sorry for Morbus'  
attitude. Please do your best to apply your own  
'filter_arrogance_and_insults' to his feedback and learn what you can  
from the technical content of his comments.

Good grief!


P.S. Speaking of buttons, whenever I see this kind of attitude around  
here, I always have to resist the strong urge to find the button that  
triggered it and see what happens if you hit it repeatedly just for  
kicks :-)  It could be pretty amusing, if it weren't for the very  
real damage it does to the drupal community (which isn't funny).
