I don't write in to wine-devel often, nor am I a developer, but I
completely agree with Tom on this one.  The amount of bad information
given out by users to other users in #winehq is positively staggering,
and I cannot fault Vitamin at all for the way he acts.  The fact
that he stays in that channel to try and help people after all the crap
he has to deal with is incredible.

If you come to #winehq with a question and a helpful attitude, Vitamin
will usually do his best to try and troubleshoot the issue, and he is
quite cordial while doing it.

If, however, you come in with a know-it-all attitude and try arguing
with him or giving out tips which are known to be erroneous, you do not
belong in #winehq until you can control yourself.  I've seen this happen
countless times, and people who get kicked never seem to understand
that they fit this negative, unhelpful mold all too well.
