Mudslinging, name-calling and negatively worded posts, without a real 
value to the debate, in general...

Who cares who's paid for what and by whom. Some possible areas of 
improvement was brought up. Perhaps we can use some that as valuable 
input to improve Fedora, perhaps not. So we should all filter the input 
to end up with something we can use constructively, rather than to keep 
"feeding the fire".

I'm all for the debate, but some of the posts are just not constructive 
at all. So lets try to focus on what we can use the input for, rather 
than spending a lot of time getting all worked up.
