If people who aren't members are raising valid concerns that need to be
addressed before development can proceed, we shouldn't reject that input on
the basis of membership and call it "blocking development".
Likewise, there are plenty of DD's whose S/N ratio is pretty high, and are
guilty of what you are accusing non-DD's of doing.
Both DD's and non-DD's troll, create flamewars, and otherwise cause issues
that block development. Putting it in terms of DD's versus non-DD's is just
prejudice and elitism at its worst.
