time and again... complaining is easy

What do you think, how much time companies with huge amount of money and dispendable work force need to address user/developer-reported security vulnerabiltities ? Ok, that was a hypothetical question, just thought I remind you of it.
Second, if you find a vulnerability, AND have the patch for it, AND have good will AND wish to help, then if you see there comes no answer from Linus or AM or AA, then why do you think starting to complain will solve anything. Or is it better than sumbitting the patches you have to good places like Debian, Gentoo, RedHat, Suse and I could go on.
Don't get me wrong, I think we ALL are thankful for the work you do guys. It's just you'd better take some etiquette lessons.
