Yes. But two of his militant fanbois suggested in the following that
the option should be removed because of Lennarts reasoning. In the
following, one of them said that if the option will be removed in the
future, it would be "our" because "we" had been using the option
"wrong" and have thus "forced lennart" to remove it since we refused
to be "educated" about "proper" use of systemd.

This is what got me furious. I am not here to be educated. I am here
to use software. What is the business of the systemd community to tell
me how I am to do my work?

Lennart is not always at fault. He has his problems with differing
opinions, but at least his reasoning is usually sound. The bigger
problems are his followers, most of them emulating his social behavior
because they think it's fine (I think the word is "role model"), but
without being this technically brilliant.
