You were much more persuasive before you started resorting to personal
attacks. I even agree with your goal somewhat, just not the current plan for
getting there, or many of your justifications for such. You will have much
better luck actually listening to others and working with them, instead of
just yelling louder and slinging mud.

As stated however, I strongly agree with Owen that this current policy is a
nightmare for the community as written.
