Sorry but I can't let that stand as it is.

A community distro is first and formost about community. Every time one of your 
ideas, suggestions, questions is answered by anyone with a "no" you begin to 
blame "a few of the core members", no matter how many people said no and who 
they were.
You just have to accept that in a community project like mageia there is a 
decission structure ( see out gouvernance model at 
So there isn't a secret inner circle of dictators who tell the other what to 
do and what not to do, it's an open structure in which everyone can 
participate. But if the majority of people take a decision, you just have to 
accept it.
If anyone just does what he thinks is best, we won't have a community project, 
we will have anarchy.

Perhaps you should consider that and stop writing unfounded accusations in 
capital letters, like you did here.

Just my 2 cents...
