Example of the work that went into the fallback mode:
If you could not get fallback mode from working, file bugs! It works for me, I've seen it working for a lot of people. I've seen emails from people who had to use it.
Suggest if you want to have a discussion to at least assume the person you're having a discussion with means well. Your post comes across as needlessly negative.

The rest of my post has merit though, no? Trying to show how people can feel abandoned even when there's no intent, and the futility of one programmer joining a mailing list to try to swing a project in a direction that it has clearly rejected.
As far as needlessly negative goes, how about "you make statements which are so easily refuted that I recommend reading the 'fallacy' wikipedia page"? :)
I'm sure we both mean well and, while acrimonious, I've found the discussion enlightening too. I appreciate the work the Gnome devs are doing even if I'm not the biggest fan of the end result. I expect I'll be a Gnome user again one day.
