I'm not entirely sure if you get anything at all. But you should read your own 
comment before pressing the 'send button'. I don't even know if I should take 
your reply serious at all, specially the way it was written.

Maybe on a neutral place and unbiassed. But you should spent more time reading 
comments of people on various places then you understand that this 'poll' is 
not really necessary. But to start with:

You are heavily ignoring these kind of comments as everyone else here is 
ignoring them.

Did you read the *private* in my previous writing. I don't want to lose 
confidence of the people who wrote to me so sorry. But now while we are at 
it, let me offer you something.

Let's open a new mailinglist named however you like and have it used as 
serious place for such kind of feedback where your own people (not 
necessarily the people outside) finally come up with their concerns and write 
what they like and what they don't like. Not the normal 'yes' saying way as 
it happens here for the past couple of years. Strangely is that whenever I 
exchange lines with people they wholeheartly agree with me or I agree with 
them. Read the 2 examples (Links) above but I'm quite sure you find excuses 
for them too.

But these are my points. Why do you want me to change the objective of my main 
concerns within GNOME ?

Know what and again a fair public reply to you, and my apologizes to those who 
may find it insulting. That's a common mistake: a) ignoring feedback, b) 
ignoring people, c) thinking to dominate the world with a poorly written 
desktop and still beliving that this poorly written desktop is exactly the 
right one for business and customers and d) calling all sorts of people and 
all sorts of places to be TROLL just because they have a different opinion 
than you.

I respect the work of everyone here and I have nothing personal against anyone 
here, seriously, you all here are without doubt friendly nice people and we 
can always sit down somewhere and drink the one or the other beer together 
but please also accept 'critics' without critics you continue this monoton 

To leave heat out of this Mailinglist you can easily private email me and we 
continue the conversation there.
