I'm afraid I really couldn't disagree more with your characterisation of this situation. If you just read the ticket, you'll find that different core developers asked people to move discussion to the mailing list *3 times*, and quite politely. Everyone who comments after that point either hasn't read or has decided to ignore *3 requests* about how to get the ticket to progress. And to add insult to the injury of having wasted people's time already, some start adding comments about how feature requests for Django are a waste of time. This is the height of rudeness, and if all they got was a sanctimonious reply, they got better than they deserved. I'm not claiming that we couldn't do better in terms of our clarifying our processes and so on, but I think you picked an example that demonstrates exactly the opposite of what you claimed.
