Um I am not sure what that last bit means, but personally speaking I do feel 
that McCreesh posts negative comments on quite a regular basis. For example, 
in the same thread he comments:
"It takes more balls to go against the prevailing stagnation than to just sit 
by idly and remain content with the situation no matter how bad it is..."
(And that's the entirety of his post.)
 As a user, gentoo works better for me now than it ever has. Obviously I have 
no access to the -core ml or #-dev so I do not know just how "bad" 
the "situation" is. Nonetheless, this is yet another blanket assertion about 
the state of Gentoo, from someone who I understand has been forcibly ejected 
from that community. And of course, it is negative, and has no discernible 
content... It just strikes me as classic FUD.

So in summary, I don't think it is wise to allow such comments to continue, 
since non-devs read the public list and see such comments going unanswered, 
as if McCreesh is voicing uncomfortable truths, when the simple fact is 
everyone has just got tired of arguing with him.
