        You were trying to frame the discussion in terms of people
 who, no longer finding the project meets their principles, are taking
 the path of leaving the project, as being childish.  It is a nice way
 of trashing your opposition in a debate; I merely turned the frame
 around. How does it feel being framed?

        So, the next time, do not frame discussions by characterizing
 the other persons actions quite so negatively. I don't think it helps
