This is exactly the kind of response that will push people away from the 
project/community.  If everyone that suggests some change that a 
respected member of the community did not like and then said member sent 
a response like this I would guess that people would stop suggesting any 

It is this kind of attitude that will drive new blood away from the 
project.  I thought the idea was to try to encourage people to make 
improvements to the project rather than to drive them away.

BTW I am not saying that any of the ideas that have been discussed in 
this thread are good or bad, just that this kind of response seems to be 
against the ethos of the project.

Just my 2p
