I am sad to see you leaving Oliver. I myself feel that everyone that has
contributed to Geeklog 1.x have done a great job whether the code works
or not. You put your time and effort into it and believed in it and that
is what matters.

Anyone who could complain about that is not worth listening to. Like you
said constructive criticism is what is needed, not "hey this 'fix'
doesn't do anything, you should have done such and such". That just says
to me the person demands that the people who are gracious enough to
spend their spare time on the project owes them.

I know I myself have not contributed any code to Geeklog 1.x but I do
appreciate everything, broken or otherwise, that everyone has contributed.

Once again it's sad to see you leave.
