Sorry Karoly, Sorry Steven, but it is a known fact that you'll only hear angry 
voices when something goes amiss, and hardly ever anything when something 
goes right.
Do you praise the taxidriver everytime he stops for you on a zebra crossing?
Do you thank the checkout girl in the supermarket when she got the total price 
of your purchase right?

I do't think it is a good idea to even suggest something like 'earning a right 
to criticise'. Its a free community, we all have that right, regardless of 
amount of committed patches or amout of times we praised someone. It is up to 
you/everyone to ignore critique if you think it is badly voiced, or lacks 
proper insight, but don't be suprised if too much ignoring fires back on you 
(or even Drupal as a whole) in the end.
