This is the last time I say it: this is demonstrably false.

You claim that relevant changes can be made if the submitter is not so verbose
(and less aggressive and what not).

This is obviously not the case. Show me any change of importance done in the
last two years, hell, make it four. And by change I mean something that was one
way before, and was another way after.

There is nothing. It doesn't matter how these changes are presented. Changes
are not welcome, doesn't matter who is championing them, or how. Period.

This is a red herring. All the patches I'm talking about were sent well before
2.0 was imminent, six months to one year ago.

Even more, I'm challenging you to find an important change since even four years
ago. You won't find any.

No, it won't. Neither 3.0.
