Anyone can suggest things, and that's fine. The difference between
a suggestion and a demand is in how you behave if your request isn't

Personally, I think it's the height of hubris to make demands of people
who've not only volunteered copious amounts of their time and skills to
your benefit, to then try to overrule their decision on the matter when,
and to do all this without even being willing to agree to the principles
of the project.
