Airing out our dirty laundry for our users to see is not something that we 
should allow or promote. I'm all for reporting errors, but b*tching to 
users? No. I'm going to file a bug on this if someone else has not.

It's pretty non-excellent of this package's maintainer, but judging by his 
previous actions I am not surprised. He has shown in the past that he has no 
qualms with breaking the "be excellent to eachother" rule.
