ok it probably wouldn't be like that on some EAB project because we're all great! but it's not all coders' Utopia.
I've seen this happen before, I know what you mean. Some of my pull requests have been treated this way. When I queried the author privately, you know what I discovered? He didn't want to include my pull request but also didn't want to be rude, so was rather torn about how to handle it. After a 5 minute conversation, we realized the conflict, I made a few changes, and it was merged.
Nobody comes out of the womb knowing this stuff, so let's not be so dramatic and generalizing of the process!
