Well since your first post was antagonistic and you essentially said 
"this code is crap" folks tend to be on the defensive.  Then when you 
follow it up with more "this code is crap" style of comments, and write 
up a multiple paragraphs to simply say "MythMusic wasn't properly 
caching settings data so it was hitting the database too often.  This 
patch takes care of that.".  People tend to get a little riled up.

Then when you couldn't find the CVS access information on the website 
when the directions for doing so are in the documentation as well as the 
"info/lists" section.  You went down another notch or two.

It's not about being PC.  It's about RESPECT.
