No. Courtesy flows .../both ways/. If you cannot be bothered to be courteous to 
let the project know that you are active, the project cannot extend the courtesy 
of calling you a contributor anymore, makes sense ?

Ugh ! you don't really that the capacity to understand metaphors, do you ?

For all intents and purposes of the ^project^ (watching the movie) you are in 
absentia, so you are no longer relevant to the decision making process of what 
happens to your privilege towards the project (ie: your movie ticket).

Don't take a simple metaphor and murder it.

Anyways, seems like you either don't have the comprehension ability to 
understand what is being said, or are just too stuck up to admit you were wrong. 
This is my last response on this thread.
