[Catalyst] [META] #catalyst banning policy

I was on #catalyst the other day. After I asked someone if he can commit a 
small patch I wrote and placed on Catalyst's Trac, I was banned (by someone 
else). After I talked with him in private, he said he banned me because my 
modules sucked, my patches sucked, and that I gave bad advice at the channel. 
After that he asked if people want to unlift my ban, and then he got banned 

The supposed suckage of my modules and patches has nothing to do with IRC 
abuse. And I would appreciate any input people have on them on the #catalyst 
channel. (Which cannot be given if I'm banned.) And being a Catalyst newbie, 
I did not give too much advice and the one I gave was not wrong.

I'm trying to write an application using Catalyst now, and can use some 
real-time help such as the one I can get on IRC. If you want Catalyst to be 
taken seriously, you should make sure its channel is free of such petty 
IRC-wars, and that people are banned only due to IRC abuse.

(And please lift the ban on *shlomi*@*bezeqint.org, because I still can't join 
the channel).
