* It is silly because this is an insignificant matter compared to the
bigger problems.
* It is useless because you're approaching this in a completely wrong
way; being vehement doesn't convince anyone.
* It is ironic because by flaming the people on that channel in a
public manner, you are degrading the tone of this mailing list.

In fact, by doing what you are doing, you are alienating people who
once supported your cause, and wanted to help. You cannot cause change
without widespread support. You cannot convince people of your
opinions by insulting them, or repeating your arguments emphatically.

I advise you to take a break to cool off and think for a while about
how you are approaching this. To make someone understand your PoV, you
must first understand their PoV and *empathize* with it.
