Tell me how you really feel!

From a short, unpublished opinion from the 10th Circuit in Broades v. Gibson, 2007 WL 1492342 (10th Cir. 2007), denying a COA:

This is the fourth petition Mr. Broades has brought before us attacking the
district court's denial of habeas corpus some seven years ago. We cannot say
emphatically enough: Mr. Broades's claims are without merit. They do not meet
the standard for relief spelled out in Rule 60(b), they do not deserve COA, and as we have said twice
previously, R. vol. 1, Doc. 49, App. 2; Broades v. Poppell, No. 02-7156, slip
op. at 1-2 (10th Cir. Dec. 30, 2002), they do not qualify him to file a
successive habeas petition. Further litigation on these issues would constitute
an egregious waste of taxpayer resources.
Accordingly, we DENY Mr. Broades's request for a COA and DISMISS this appeal
