An appropriate response to a loaded statement, no?

Seriously, I'm very curious where this contempt comes from. It makes following the Gnome project's many twists and turns fairly tough (for me anyway). I don't see it in any of the other open source projects I'm involved with.

Is it an intentional part of the Gnome project, from Day and McCann on down?

"We think, "good riddance" when someone threatens to stop using Gnome."
