Yes, you seem to be attemtpting to forbid other people to think
differently _here_. That is true.

I'm afraid you don't understand the idea of making decisions. They are
not made to personally harm you. People who make decisions you don't
like don't really have bad feelings for you. They don't disregard your
opinion. They don't ignore you. They just make a decision that makes
sense to them and then take responsibility for it.

I'm not sure how you manage to survive in a modern society without
understanding such basic concepts, but that's a topic I wouldn't
rather not venture to discuss, because it's simply none of my

2) Adjust software to their needs. CHECK.
3) Explain the change. CHECK.
4) Tell others you are sorry it doesn't work for them anymore. CHECK.

In other words, you are sort of muttering into the ears of about 1K
subscribers to this mailing list without asking their permissions for
it, because you think they are deaf anyway. _And_ you attempt to
lecture people about listening to opinions. Well, I hope you are at
least happy with the outcome.
