+1 on the wording
However Stable is not inappropriate (as opposed to Development) since the
version is NOT unstable... It might crash now and then,  but not more than
any other version/software :)

Actually this is not about the website. It is about the projects
quality/coherence  philosophy. I have two options: accept it or leave the
mailing list/project. This is not in any way a threat/warning, it's a
decision I have to make personally.

There is no "us". I'm *not* a member of the QA team (or TDF), so this is my
personal opinion as someone who worries about quality and is/was trying to
contribute some time/knowledge.

Again, in not a staff member so I usually only check QA and Users and even
if I occasionally post on other mailing lists (where I am allowed) I don't
feel that I have failed by not participating in that particular Website
discussion (which was directed by a Marketing logic)...

I wasn't offending anyone and I am/was also a volunteer. In any case, as you
can see from the (lack of) replies, not many people agree with my point. So
don't worry ;)

Kind regards,
