You are not filing a bug report for me.  You are filing it for you.  You are 
the one who is going on about bug reports being filed to help the developers.  
I am not using Mint/MATE, and have no intention of doing so just because it 
is so dear to your heart.

You could have fooled me!!!

Why should I?  I have no duty to help MATE just because I dislike it.  Rather 
the opposite I would have thought.  There are loads of projects out there.  
You seem to be saying that I have a duty to help every one.

I'm quite happy just not to use it.  You apparently are not.  It is up to the 
developers whether they want to do something about it.  They show no sign of 
doing so.

I wish that people wouldn't try to "help" me by trying to force me to use 
something I don't want to use.

This is just getting silly.  I owe MATE nothing.  I wish that I had never gone 
anywhere near it.  I should have looked at Cinnamon if I wanted to look at 

The silliest thing of all is that I strongly suspect that most of what I 
dislike is in fact due to Mint.
