-1 to any burst of patches like that. No one will review them.
Absolutely No one.

If you want to contribute things that were done in the past like that,

spacing them out, and allowing conversation at a normal pace.

Yes its a pain in the ass, but a 'burst' of patches like that is a
massive pain in the ass to everyone else in the community.
