It was not “just small”, and it’s not going away. We already had a discussion about it, and a second chance, and another discussion etc as mentioned where Random_dragon quoted me.
There has been a consistent pattern of Random_dragon criticizing everything in sight, even when there was no problem, and frequently in areas of github or the forums where it was completely unrelated to the topic at hand. He gets angry and combative when he’s given feedback, and has called me a liar on multiple occasions. Contributor-wise he has consistently overreached what he can get working, relies on the other contributors to fix his problems, and refuses to check his own work as needed, with the end result of getting other contributors to do a large part of the work for features he wants, which wastes everyone’s time.
In short, he’s a consistent source of drama, negativity, and needless work; and I came to the conclusion that he wasn’t going to change his behavior (this has been ongoing for months), so I decided I can’t work with him, at first by not engaging in discussion with him (because he’d turn everything into an argument, call me a liar, etc), and later by telling him he is no longer welcome to contribute to the project.
I don’t think any of this is malicious, which is what has made it drag out so far, but that doesn’t change the fact that I can’t work with him.
