Call it browbeat as you wish (I could call what you're doing browbeating, but I won't), but you still miss the point - my objection is _after_ the fact - it is a valid remonstration. I was excluded from the list for reasons you haven't named, but are apparently now trying to make up to justify your ommision (deliberate or otherwise). But you don't seem to have read very much of what I said - for my mailing list posts, the majority of mine were answers to questions from others - did others answer as many questions - perhaps, but not many. But that's just one thing I did. Articles? I count around 20, some quite lengthy, as well as updating some older ones to make them current.

All development contains "contributions by others", except a limited number of pure ARM programs, of which there aren't many. That is the nature of development, so that's hardly a valid point. Martin is updating programs written by someone else, and much of the work recently published by Paul was written by others. It may be your opinion about my contributions (for reasons you haven't named), but again you contradict yourself - it's a poll, not "Chris's picks of 2005".

I must say I am deeply disappointed at this situation. No doubt I do look silly to some, but that is the nature of standing up for myself.
