I personally welcome any and all posts here .. to paraphrase an aphorism “There is no such thing as a bad post, only a bad reply”. Others may of course disagree.

I realize it makes me seem like a grumpy old guy, but I was thinking more of the, "Lets introduce some syntax sugar that breaks all existing code, and by the way I have no intention of writing a patch," sort of emails. It's just obviously not going to go anywhere.

Better to ask questions then write proposals. Or like Andrew said, make observations. Many proposals are XY problems in disguise.

Agreed, but I’d rather they posted than get waved away with some sort of “You didn’t read the 25 rules of the Perfect Post .. bad boy!” type thing (not saying you would do that, but I’m sure you’ve seen such things in other forums/lists).
