blessed by GNOME?

Your answers sound aggressive to me but I think that's totally understandable given all the negative feedback.

I gave my feedback. I'd want the survey to be much more detailed. "What do you think about this menu option on Cheese" seems like it would give more feedback than "do you like GNOME?" But I do not have time to help come up with the questions, so I agree with many folks that say you'll have to take the feedback you've gotten and move forward.

Giving feedback does not mean providing alternatives or working on the project. It's easy to give feedback. It's much harder and more time consuming to incorporate that feedback. You asked for feedback, you got some. If you want those people's approval, then you'll probably have to incorporate that feedback. If you aren't planning on incorporating it, then it's probably best to stop insisting that people need to provide alternatives if they give negative feedback.

Obviously, you don't need everyone's approval to move forward. Rarely does any project get 100% approval.

How you move forward, how much feedback you want and how you use that feedback is up to you.

Good luck!
