There's no need to be rude or to insult [1] anyone just because they
don't share your point of view. It doesn't help to support your
possition a single bit (just on the opposite), and their reasons might
be as legitimate as yours. In the end, there is no absolute and
objective truth on how to interpret DFSG (or any guidelines of this
kind for that matter), so all we can do is to show all the points of
view, our reasons and concerns, and try to reach a consensus. Lets
avoid insults and concentrate on the arguments that support each
position. Lets keep this discussion civil.
