That argument is not convincing at all. If you want to put yourself a
vendaje over your eyes.., your self...
Most of you (developers -mostly from Red Hat or got involved there,
etc...-) think that everyone that uses Linux, having chose or not
Fedora, is a developer too, and therefore is in condition of promote big
changes in a Linux project. That's precisely your fault, I think
developers are completely unable to abstract themselves by a moment and
to think like common end users would be (empathy).

I couldn't even see the email-messages until today, but if you say that
sending 6-8 emails are "many" you must be right..
There are tons of infinite threads almost daily that surpass this amount
per day. So, considering that I didn't reply anything from Monday until
today (Sunday), average would be... 1 per day? Do you consider it
In relation with "consolidate your replies", please let me know if there
is a only email that lacks of sense or not written seriously.
