I can't speak directly for Jordi, but I think I've had similar
reactions in the past to people that seemed to be demanding something
for nothing, or who seemed to expect that I do some work for them, all
while they were telling me how the work I had already done was somehow

Most of the feedback we get is negative (bug reports, complaints about
the things that don't work correctly, comments from people calling us
kindergartners, and so on).  In my experience, years of negative
feedback can wear you down and make you see even reasonable comments
and questions as attacks.  Maybe Jordi needs to take a break from the
list.  I know I did, and that's why I rarely post here now.
