Re: [trinity-devel] KDE vs. Trinity: Is One Really Better?

As far as I'm concerned, anybody is entitled to their opinions. I could say, 
for instance, that I don't care for KDE4. That statement is true for me 
personally and is independent of anybody else, I form my opinions myself and 
I don't let anybody else dictate those opinions. Even though I try to provide 
feedback to the TDE developers whenever possible, my opinions aren't theirs 
and their opinions aren't mine. I'm always prepared to defend my views with 
facts rather than sensless attacks; I do admit to seeing some good things in 
KDE4, and I don't intend to attack the KDE developers, just to let them know 
why I don't like KDE4 in hopes that they will try to improve.

Most people don't do that. They make attacks that have little or no patience 
in facts. I have no patience for that. Best to avoid that and put on the site 
in plain site something like, "If you have a problem with TDE, please file a 
bug report or contact our developers via IRC or mailing list to see if it can 
be resolved before you do your review." We can then link to our mailing lists 
and IRC logs. That way, the people who attack us without asking for help or 
without putting any REAL effort into fixing the issue look like total idiots. 
After all, didn't we offer to help them out, and put effort into helping
