I have simply used one view I find especially out of this world as an example. But I have been speaking in plural and let me rephrase, just to be absolutely clear - all of those views, bug report responses, etc. mentioned in the blog seem appalling to me.
I won't list the developers names here as I don't want to make this in any way personal (it really isn't), but I believe I have counted at least five persons, all presumably employed by Red Hat to work on Gnome, GTK+ or related tasks.
I just don't see these as merely sporadic private views of people that don't have any weight. I also don't see these views as uncharacteristic of the way Gnome 3 is taking lately. Am I wrong? I'd be glad to be wrong.
