Be as blunt as you want, but I can't see any reason why I would be offended
by frank, polite, and reasonable discussion of what you see as GNOME's
drawbacks. If you're just going to shit on the work of Free Software hackers
by saying it "sucks" and just being flat out rude, there's no point in
hearing your feedback. It's not like I'd care about your problems if you
were incapable of expressing your concerns in a polite manner.

I think some people are forgetting that it's Free Software, and what that
