1) I've written answers as well. I don't know how to compute a
ratio, if possible, but I've been active on lots of places. Here

you see that I have 74 answers, to 62 questions. I haven't changed
my personality since I left that site, so I suspect I have a
fairly even ratio here. (Except for all this meta discussion.)

2) Even if I were only asking questions, there is nothing egoistic
about that, because the questions and everything is public. I
usually include all my preceding efforts (usually Elisp), and I
don't doubt that people read my questions, and the subsequent
discussion, and learn from the whole process, from the question to
the last answer.

Wrong. I know stuff, and I make stuff.

Wrong. You should never be rude and especially not when people are
productive. There is no balance. You can't do some good things,
and then expect to get away with bad things.

Completely unheard of...! You are such a *jerk*!
