Yes, you did. But the tone was a bit too harsh. "Your stuff sucked so hard
the only sane thing to do was rm -rf it". Maybe psychology is what is
needed to push him to make a better product? I would at least not like to
work on something that "the big hackers on the list" have said is totally
worthless. Everyone releases a first product at one time, and usually it
contains a few flaws.
