I don't think that's a fair characterization. I had no intention of  
hijacking the thread, I was trying to do something constructive with a  
decidedly non-constructive thread, in the place documented on the site  
currently as the place to discuss it. I told everyone where I was  
posting it. I thought it was publicly archived, I was wrong, but I'm  
sure we can fix that.

Everything I saw was folks arguing about who had the right to decide  
on a change that everyone seemed to agree on. If I missed it, can you  
please point to the message ID where you pointed out that discrepancy?
