He *did* spend a lot of time working on Pure LFS which is objectively an 
improvement.  MSB's post *did* blur the line between criticizing 
behavior on mailing lists and Greg (and Ryan, among others; Greg was 
mentioned specifically) and his hard work.

(I wish these things never happened on ml's and people could go back to 
work productively)
