If the initial mail had focused on "Material design" as its object of
concern rather than "UX designers" then:

 * It would still have help you understand your concerns about Material
   - I note that your hate is about Material design and not UX people.
     This distinction makes a huge difference for me.

 * It would not have alienated every UX designer in the world including
   those that use other principles than "Material design".

 * It would have reduced or avoided this sub-thread, which would have
   lead to considerable better focus of our energies and less wasted
   time discussing its content.
   - While I do not personally understand the need for using "I hate X",
     the use of "I also hate with a passion Material design" in itself
     would not have triggered a mail from me.

If we do not agree on the above, then consider this a "agree to
disagree" remark from me (to save a round trip costing time from every
subscriber on d-d).
