Where anybody talked about democracy??? Listening arguments is not
democracy. And why to assume that users are wrong? Some of them are
developers, you know? Enlightened maybe? :P

How you can agree with Uriel, when he only deliver arbitrary opinions, but
no arguments?? Yes, he sometimes is right, but he never explain reasons.
This is way to annoy people, not to convince them, even when he is right.

Garbeam is not a saint and have faults, but at least try to discuss.
