Reading this feels about like reading someone write, "The only rationale for 
not smoking cigarettes in this restaurant is compliance with state law."

How about not suggesting that the majority of Debian developers who voted for 
that GR were crazy people making a decision with no rational basis?  You 
might disagree with it, but at least try to understand that there was a 
reason for it that seemed valid to a lot of people.
