Insulting anyone will never make them listen to you. Well, it may work
in the military or any other structure where you have a hierarchy which
you can use to force others to follow your orders.
This just doesn't work in an environment where everyone is participating
out of free will, donating his time and knowledge voluntarily to the
project and where there's no real hierarchy to enforce what anyone is doing.
Insulting people (independent of being done with the usage of certain
words or "just" some kind of content) will just make them turn away from
you, no matter if your ideas are good or bad.
I also think you are judging features or changes in our software without
actually knowing in what way they are going to end up in the final
product (honestly, you couldn't know it, because not even us who are
actively working on them do know all details right now). And still, even
if we all would know what the options look like in detail, there's
always a range of different tastes among the diverse group interested in
using this product, and sometimes we must make compromises, one way or
I respect your opinion and I think you should also try to respect
opinions different than yours. It's not always easy, but doable. And
maybe there's even some kind of solution we all could live with.
