In the next section I clarify that "certain people" means the people who
are very disruptive. Cutting it away doesn't change that I wrote exactly
Let me be helpful and put it back for you:

I cut it for brevity, and guess what, your rationalization is off anyway. The above statement states that a subset of "certain people" are disruptive. It doesn't say certain people == the disruptive people. Even if you rephrased it as:
They sharply illustrate that open source developers are far more
pragmatic than DISRUPTIVE PEOPLE in the audience would like us to be.
You are still implying that those who are in opposition are the disruptive people. It is a blanket, emotional statement. You could have simply left it with open source developers are far more pragmatic than some give credit for.
Because you are pretty disrespectful in how you deal with debate, this is the last time I am replying to you on this thread.
