Calling things epic fail just does not help to create a discussion. Now you make all kinds of statements. E.g. KDE is the end all of usability. Look, I know you are a KDE fan. But there is something like Mac OS X. Your epic fail does not mean anything.
However, just making things emotional by suggesting that we would not care, or that things are an "epic fail". And the "understand communities", really nice behaviour that you're displaying towards the GNOME community, changing a "meh" into "epic fail".
