I would say that if you had been open about your reasons for wanting to
remove the comments from the C code then you would have got a better
reception. You still haven’t given a clear and open reason for doing
this, instead you are hiding behind the “I’m the wounded party here”
Be open and honest with the list and the list will help, if you try to
hide things then the list will throw about allegations and accusations
about your intent and you won’t the help that you requested.
