No you did not, you only gave your opinion and as you can see I don't agree.
Then claiming your opinion is "the right thing" is kind of bold.

Right and the original report had the right way of fixing it, but since MATE is
not in Debian I said I wouldn't add it.

Right and instead of working on that you try to work around it by creating this one.

I didn't attack you, I just tried to point out that you hit the wrong tone yourself.

You brought your points, I brought mine and then your argument was, that your
way is "the right thing". What is this if not trolling?

I repeat again, this is *not* the right thing. The patch in the other bug
report would be, if MATE was in Debian.
