We have to prioritise on issues based on needs of paying commercial customers,
non-paying open-source enthusiasts, and our own. Issues are filed to to
tracked, and dealt with in due course, based on our limited resources.
Sometimes it takes a long time, some times it is quicker.

We really don't care what you think. I have issued the warning a few times
already, and I have reviewed your posting history and all the bugs you filed
past and present as well and tried to find some significant positive
contribution from you (and found none), before taking action.
