 I'm done. After seeing how Andrei is behaving, I really am done. Bye.

Just to clarify, yes, I will still maintain my current projects. But as far as D and its development goes, I am well and truly finished. You do your thing, Andrei. Have fun.

you objecting to ?

Hm, could it be years of constant, repeated disappointment with the leadership? The utter lack of community input on many important features? The antiquated, closed development model? Or maybe just the shitty toolchain, shitty rift between "standard" libraries, and shitty third-party libraries? But what's really been chafing my ass for the past year or so has been Andrei and his astronomical ego. This is the post that broke *this* camel's back: http://digg.com/d3170vV You might also be interested in these self-written bios by a man who might as well describe himself as the goddamn savior of modern programming practice. http://pastie.org/652008 http://pastie.org/private/iyj51x5gjjr3qp6ipatta I can't, in good conscience, support a language that has someone like this at the wheel. Sorry.

Giving him crap for what OTHER PEOPLE have written about him seems a bit hypocritical considering the way you talk yourself up in the "WHAT I AM INTERESTED IN" section at the top of http://www.jfbillingsley.com/blog/ .
