I'm a Cygwin user, and I posted on a Cygwin mailing list and argued
that a package should be included in Cygwin. As part of my argument, I
described why Cygwin is useful to me and why I think the package I'm
proposing would make Cygwin more useful. There's nothing wrong with that.

Yes, you've heard the "Cygwin is not VirtualBox" argument before.
You're not swayed. I get it. So why bother replying? If I were
compelled to interrupt conversations just to complain that I'd already
heard some argument or other, I wouldn't be able to function in
society. Hell, I probably wouldn't make it down the block without
being arrested.
