I think that it's worth pointing out that:

None of us (unless we're redhat employees) having any direct
representation of RedHat. Our thoughts and beliefs are all our own..
 RedHat != RedHat Community 

Some on this list are far more experienced, at times I think briefness
is mistaken for rudeness... we're all giving our time for free (except
one bunch of people)..

We need to be a bit gentler on people, if they aren't following the
system, let them know how to do it (or IGNORE them), if they continue to
stamp their feet and throw their weight around; then, well they should
be able to look after themselves.

Can a requirement be "you must take comments you don't like with a grain
of salt" be a term of subscribing?
