I don't believe that you have properly conveyed and/or understood the
substance of the statement, taken somewhat out of context, you debate.  I
believe that it was intended to convey that you do not complain about a
*gift* but offer positive suggestions about directions you believe would
benefit the intended audience which is *not* ps users and gimp is not
being developed to replace ps or take it's users, but an excellent and
capable graphics editing program to use, if you wish.

And this *aim*, iiuc, has been spoken here on this list many times.
