That may be your opinion, or perhaps the community council's opinion,
but that still does not make it gospel. I have received both criticism
and praise for my comments about the website changes on the tor-users
mailing list. As far as I can determine based on email I received, how
satire is perceived is mostly divided along cultural/national lines.

I think that the notion of "if you don't have anything positive to say
don't say anything at all" is counterproductive. If it looks like a
duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a
duck, and I don't care one iota how much time and effort somebody spent
trying to create a swan, and failed at it.

Nobody has to share my opinion (however, there was more agreement than
criticism), but I'll not sacrifice that honest opinion for political
correctness. I determine what is appropriate for me, and at my age I
have damn well earned that right.
