Gunnlaugur>Yes you're right - you're describing (colourfully) what you consider Peter's behaviour to be. While I wouldn't characterise his behaviour in that way - all I'd say is he is publically complaining over a slight he perceives to have suffered. He is IMHO quite entitled to do that. I'd also add it *does* seem a bit "odd" that his name was not included in the awards.

If porting Firefox and doing sterling work on GCCSDK is not enough to get someone into the nominees list just exactly what herculean task *IS* sufficient to do so then?

As I said before Awards are the most effective way of sowing division and creating arguments (we've had enough of those this year IMHO). If Awards are to be *ever* done again then they had better start with an open and fair nomination process - otherwise we'll face this sort of rubbish again in 2006.
