Please, spare me the “inflammatory” speech, and stop playing with
words.  This here is a serious matter.

And the simple fact of it all is that the submission was turned down,
Ben did not resubmit (he obviously has better things to do in his life
than indulging the absurd[1] requirements of this team), he then went
on to release the new version on the Tarski homepage, and WordPress
Extend is still in version 2.6 from March 2010.

If you don’t understand what all this means, let me make it clear for you:

This team here is driving people away.  In this case, it is driving
away one of the jewels of the WordPress coding community.

[1] Here is a striking example of an absurd requirement:  That we must
use body_class() and post_class() in our themes.  Could this demand be
any more absurd?  It could not?  Wrong!  Just direct it to the author
of Tarski, who wrote himself the core WordPress functions based on
existing implementations in Sandbox and in his own Tarski. :-o
