It was directed at whomever was the first to do it and everyone who's done it since. It's definitely hijacked -- that's the first thing on that page now and anyone who wants to see the rules has to scroll past all your names. I disagree with you that it's the first place to get noticed if for no other reason because that's the kind of page that people who are already approved to post will only visit if a question arises about acceptable content, etc.
The wiki is there for knowledge, NOT for posting messages or drawing attention no matter how impatient people get or how important they think the subject. At least you wrote both developers; I suspect many others didn't.
I clearly don't see things the same way you do. I see DSL-the-distro totally separately from DSL-the-business. It didn't cost you or anyone anything to download the ISO and use it. My decision to use DSL and to be active in the community is because DSL-the-distro isn't just damn small, it's damn good. I don't have ANY hesitation in recommending it because it's good, and I wouldn't dismiss it as being not "a serious distro" (your own words) because of factors totally unrelated to what the ISO is and does. Much less suggesting its development should stop just because of an issue related to how people are approved for joining the forums.
I really can't address the "I won't shop here" remark (I want to!) even though you elaborated because it's John's business, not mine. You go ahead and do what you feel you have to, though, even if it's *just* to make a point.
