Christ guys. This whole thread is retarded.

The *ONLY* reason people seem to have for reverting that is a "ooh, my
feelings are hurt by how this was done, and now I'm a pissy bitch and
I want to get this reverted".

Stop the f*cking around already.

If you want something reverted, you show me the *technical* reason for
it. Not the "ooh, I'm so annoyed by how this was done" reason for it.

And if your little feelings got hurt, get your mommy to tuck you in,
don't email me about it. Because I'm not exactly known for my deep
emotional understanding and supportive personality, am I?
