It's the same attitude I've seen here lo, these many years, about both
systemd and SELinux, and for the most part, nobody objects. Is there a
rule now, for this list, about expressing opinions?
People do object. Sometimes if it's just a one-off comment, it is just
ignored or "it's just him again". But it really does make the
discussion unpleasant. If you don't have a helpful comment, then just
don't comment. If you can provide something helpful, then do so, but
without the negative put-downs. Maybe you don't like the particular
software under discussion, but many people do. And in the case of
Wayland, pulseaudio, systemd, etc., enough people liked it that they
switched the distribution over to using it.
