Were my ideas so bad, that only the point 8 deserves a comment?

Instead of picking the idea and saying "it's bad" or "it's good, and
we should discuss it a bit", seems that it's preferable to defend the
core commiters and let all go on as nothing should be done.

Remember: it was not me that created the "Ready To Be Commited", so if
it means something else than it's literal meaning, it's not my fault
neither the fault of other simple developers that do not have the
"force or the torch of power with them".

Don't you think there is a problem that should be aligned and correct
with newer perspectives for a better work?

Don't you think that small human beings like us, deserve at least a
little consideration for our work? Or are we just machines to do the
hard work of testing, documentating and correcting things while "core
developers" do the "good stuff"?!
