You know... that right there is representative of many, many users experience with GNOME 3.x and (more importantly) the community backing it.
A user complains about a workflow regression and the very first response is "what are you doing that for?"
Now in general that's a fine response in some cases. I've definitely said something like that to users of software that I've worked on. But I don't develop general purpose desktop software, and when the feature in question is something that's been part of the desktop computing experience for decades, and when the regression occurred for no perceptible reason other than "we don't care about people doing $FOO this way anymore", there are serious problems (IMHO.)
