Calling out a contributor by cherry-picking seven of his hundreds (probably
thousands) of comments is pretty lame. But given how much you've apparently
read Trac lately, I'm surprised you haven't realized that Marko's tone
isn't a matter of disrespect, but that English is not his first language.

Were they "snap" comments? Well, yeah — he was posting his initial
reaction. Nothing wrong with that. But not only were his comments mostly
dead-on, not a single of them are paired with an immediate ticket closure.
