Discussing how to ignore people publically is not what I expect from adult
developers of Debian. That's highly impolite and tasteless.
As adults you should've learned to respect other peoples opinions regardless
if they match your own POV or if they sound silly to you.
This kind of bad behaviour is part of the big picture why Debian is often
considered arrogant and why it has a bad reputation to users.
