I don't think the unwarranted abuse has been appropriate. It hasn't been
polite disagreement, suggestion of error or diplomatic discussion, it has
been flat out demonisation. I think the work of my peers - whatever project
they work on - deserves far more respect, particularly from someone who
purports to be a member of the greater community. As shown elsewhere in the
thread, these kinds of disagreements *can* be discussed kindly. Some
participants have been incapable of doing so.
