I agree.  This has always been a problem, and it does not seem to
change or improve.  It is time to speak up.

Svante, it is really hard to interact with you, and it is certainly not
because of a lack of trying on our part.  It is puzzling to me, really.
Please try to find someone you trust, someone that is completely honest
with you and whose judgment you respect, and talk with her or him about
your interactions with the project.  Show this persons IRC logs and mail
conversations, but don't cherry pick.  Get a second opinion, a new

Because the way you behave is having an detrimental effect.  It is a
drain on scarce resources.  It is certainly not helping.  Please get
help to improve the way you interact with other people, or just leave us

Failing that, I believe that we as a project need to discuss how to deal
with the problem.  I learned that there is a precedent of the Hurd
project kicking someone out, though I certainly consider that a last
resort (also, I have no idea how to implement such a measure).
