Strong feelings are being expressed…
You, sir, have no business being in charge of making bug prioritization
decisions, bemused dolt that you are. Deciding to close bugs because the
Bugzilla reports aren’t being updated is the choice of a fool who has no
concept how robust code is created and maintained, a beancounter
mentality choice, not a software developer choice. That you have
made this choice despite the protests of wiser heads working on
Mozilla code show that you are not merely a fool, but an invincibly
ignorant one, so sure of yourself when in error that you cannot
even heed wise counsel.
Such persons are best removed posthaste from the gene pool, as a danger to all and everything around them.
Allow me to repeat and to underline that I support very much this initiative/measure/feature of robo-resolving 12,342 inactive unconfirmed bugs. This feature includes a 2 week grace period: that is a sane, sound and absolutely fair period of time.
I am 100% convinced that such measure will do overwhelmingly more good (much more good) than do bad. The balance of benefits versus inconvenients and implied trade-off in this feature will bring a lot of fresh air into a deeply rotten mass of bugreports which no longer made any sense.
Again, you have my unconditional one thousand percent (1000%) support in this initiative.
