I'm wrong every so often and I say that here when it happens. So no worries, it has not died. I just think we have more trolls, and unfortunately LWN is like a free for all (behave like you want, only action in extreme cases).
In any case, suggest to also killfile me, because I don't kind killfiles acceptable. I won't let bad comments go unanswered. Not answering those comments gives the impression that everyone agrees IMO.
