The example is a reminder from the old days era of old MAME.net web site where users like PacDude would post unhelpful crap and then bitch at various MAME contributors (devs etc.) and then post complaints about various MAME emulation bugs ruining his favorite games whether they were Asteroids or Slither.
"If any MAMEdev ruins Slither in any such way, they will be in big trouble with me." That's probably what PacDude would probably say if he were still around.
