> consider reverting your pre-emptive suppression of this functionality

I'm sorry, but what's that "functionality"? It links to the settings. That's
all. We already had a link to the settings in the personal bar. Was there a
problem with that link? Should we suppress that instead? What's the benefit of
having a duplicate item except for being an advertisement?

* It's a duplicate, redundant link to the same special page.
* It can confuse people. Why does the Beta settings tab have an extra menu
item? Why not the Widgets, for example?
* It's inserted with JavaScript and makes all items on the left jump. When I
try to access my talk page I accidentally click on something else. This happens
very often and gets pretty annoying. Same problem with the orange bar from
Echo, by the way.
* There is a beta feature discussed to compact the personal bar.[1] Adding an
item is counter-productive. It's the opposite of what we and you want.
* An important reason to create the beta features was that the community got
annoyed by unexpected UI changes. As a reaction to that critics the UI gets
changed. Please excuse me if I find that strange.

* It makes people aware of the beta features.

I'm sorry but in conclusion I don't think the users personal bar is the right
place to do advertisement. Talk to the people in the village pump and other
appropriate places, please.
