agreed :)
should have been renamed long ago...

that is IMO no surprise.
it is a fact that there are many kde3.x users who still don't feel comfortable 
with kde4, for several reasons (which are not necessarily objective).
so, why should they not be able to articulate their frustration on a kde list 
and, as said before, this situation would have been much better if there would 
have been more support for kde3 from the mainstream distros, which is 
obviously not the case.

why not just ignore those posts ?

that depends on topic/common interest.
