So what you are trying to say is: "I know this is wrong, but do it anyway."

GIMP is intended to be a tool for professional use. Professionals are
people who know they should pick the right tool for the job. If a user
doesn't know, what the right tool is, and doesn't want to be educated,
that user isn't a professional and hence is outside of the target user
group. End of story.

Just when you think you got rid of ugly trolling in this mailing list,
reality delivers a punch in the face.

If you want to continue the conversation in a constructive manner,
please make an effort of being reasonable.

We have no end of interesting ideas. It's developers we are short of.
