Sorry but the "project leads" don't need joe users making obvious
suggestions.  We've obviously made many previous releases and don't
require a vague suggestion from someone to realize when it is time
for a new one.

Earnie's observations were spot on.  As a project maintainer himself he
knows what a waste of bandwidth these messages are.  If his message will
make someone think twice before sending something a similar "why don't
you do your job" message then that's a good thing.
