This community has shown many times that it doesn't follow your logic. You've made your point, we listened, we rejected it. Please _try_ to understand that you *can't* force your opinion no matter how many times you repeat it. There are times when the majority will reach a decision you think is wrong. If the community feels their choice, albeit not perfect, will help the project, you have to respect that. That is, if you want to be part of the community :)

Please try to restrain yourself from commenting on topics where the community has already reached a decision in the future. Even if you don't like it ;) -- Alex Alexander :: wired Gentoo Developer
