Wiselinks issue

I tried to reach out, and I feel bitten by the response.

Am I being sensitive, or is my interpretation appropriate?

I thought it might help to collaborate on what features are useful etc,
but
I feel like all my design decisions are being rejected, and that nothing
I
have done would or could be good. The only good thing he had to say -
“It
is very good that you tried to find all cases in which History.js (or
maybe
browser history API) works not as it should work.” seems to be implying

“good try, but your solution sucks”. And then it seems he just wants me
to
spend time explaining what is wrong - but I don’t want spend time to
understand it for
himhttps://www.google.com/search?q=“I+can+explain+it+to+you+but+I+can’t+understand+it+for+you”&hl=en&rlz=1C1GGGE_enNZ396GB407&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=LqgqUef7IYetigLDpIH4Bw&ved=0CC8QsAQ&biw=1366&bih=667

well, more so because I feel like my competence is being questioned.

Well I think if you want someone to make changes to their open source
project it’s up to you to explain what changes you’d like or what
doesn’t
work (or better, a pull request!) rather than just referring to a 3 page
post. I don’t think I’d read into his responses what you’ve read, but
that’s easy to do, and I can see how some of your responses could come
across the wrong way too.

And sometimes different projects have differences of opinion on
approach,
dependencies etc. That’s OK!
