No, I stopped because there was nothing coming from Trinity lately which I 
thought worthwhile to comment on. And you see I haven't forgotten you either 
and still follow your development ;-)

And here we see, why I wrote in my blog post you refer to that "It’s pure 
hatred against KDE technologies and this dominates the development of 
Trinity." - I think your comment here speaks for yourself.

If you think KDE is shit, write it. Don't go the way of trying to avoid any 
bitching against KDE. It's not true and your archives are public. Everybody 
can read it and what you really mean.

Nevertheless, no hard feelings from my side. I wish you all success for your 
release and (although already a little bit late) a Merry Christmas and a Happy 
New Year.
