neither A nor B would get a normal reply. as soon as it starts to not
follow the vision you have about GNOME it usually end in a flame. but
something i don't like in your reply is that you are forcing on us the
way you like we should reply to you. of course i understand that the
tone is making the music but you should also be able to deal with
negative criticism. in real life (dunno if you have such) people act
strange, not usually correct and different. you deal with all kind of
people with different attitudes, behaviours, temperament etc. you need
to deal with them. some of them piss you off, some don't. i personally
recall times where you are falling under the category A) when replying
to people.
