Maybe (as often) only the ones disagreeing decided to participate in the
thread on -qa@? Also, the thread has been silent since the end of
Debconf, so I'm quite surprised this come up now.

I think that the poll made it clear that a large majority of people on
-qa@ were in favor of the change. With such a minor change (disabling it
permanently for you is three clicks away -- Display config - Hide -
Submit), I think that a short poll on -qa@ was enough.

But if you disagree and want to start that discussion again, feel free
to start a poll on reverting the change in a wider audience, and with
the duration you consider appropriate. (When the details are ready, I
would prefer if you asked me beforehand if I also consider the poll
setup appropriate, so we don't get into a "my poll is more correct than
yours" problem.)
