Ah, so the only people who matter are the immature children who throw
temper tantrums while the adults are busy with important work?
Interesting concept, although I can see how people who believe this
would be tempted to act like immature little children, because there's
the expectation that such behavior should yield good results.

The people who matter here the most are those that are hard-working,
productive, helpful. The people who aren't whining like a tired baby
on every mailinglist thread that they find disagreeable. This is a
group of people that tend not to make their opinions well-known, but
scarcity is directly proportional to importance here.
