Provide the results of the tests you exercised yourself. So far you
haven't. 

All you did was to agitate and reiterate populist propaganda.

My checks so far have not provided any indication noatime solves
anything, also I can not reproduce the 50% speedup some people claim to
see.

The subject at hand are:
- You are wanting to cripple Fedora, by sacrificing a little used
feature.
 Thereby you are closing out certain types of future developments and
current usages. I call this short-sightedness and narrow-mindedness.
 You are wanting Fedora to diverge away from UNIX. You are conventing
Fedora into WinIx.

- I think you are not qualified to judge the technical side-effects of
what you are proposing and not qualified to take a leading role in
fedora. I was glad to see you failed the elections.
