 I was afraid the mail would be too long to understand, and I see I was right. 
So, again in a shorter version, the two main aspects I don't like are:
- the fact that we got this "policy" in a way which reminds me of the past 
regime in this country - it was done for the people and for their good on 
their behalf, it was posted for comments but the only allowed comment was "I 
approve", it was the only option, the feedback was ignored and the policy was 
simply put up on techbase afterwards and with modifications even though that 
wasn't originally allowed, and now history is changing with everybody 
pretending like none of that happened and everything was right.
- some tendencies to be pedantic about every single detail of the policy.

 I don't like the policy itself, that's true, but compared to this, I couldn't 
care less.
