And it's not just as small minded (I'm not agreeing with you, by the
way) to assume that your point is the only valid point in the
discussion?  Nor is it just as small minded to systematically attack
someone, and the community they take part in, because they have the
audacity to disagree with you?

It's obviously not inconsequential, as you're making such a fuss about
it.  If it's so inconsequential, why not bottom post and be done with

Congratulations, rule-abiding denizens of php-general, we're now all
Nazis!  Way to invoke Godwin, by the way, it clearly always wins these
internet argu-debates and doesn't make you look like a loon at all.

"I don't like your rules, rules that existed before I got here and
will exist after I leave and are agreed on by the community, so I'll
not follow them!" is one of the most arrogant things I've ever seen on
this list.  He was making a suggestion, ffs, and you just want to be
an ass and take everything personally.  You're making an entire
mountain range out of the proverbial molehill.
