You claim was that:
- this code is trivially easy to implement
- that developers failed to do so "purely because they can't be bothered/not 
competent enough"
- and presented as something happening right now, without mention that it 
refers to something
suggested/proposed/demanded year ago and abandoned also years ago

And you topped it with 
"if developers are offended at receiving suggestions on how to improve their 
software, or even have it criticized, then they should rescind it."

Yes, I am offended. But it was not a suggestion. It was a baseless insult and 
misrepresentation of
a situation, that is generally not useful or desirable.
