Unlikely.  Dozens of people have pointed it out over the years,
politely, rudely, coherently, agrammatically...

But the Cygwin developers really do not care.  They (and let's face
it, "they" is mostly cgf) think that working on free software is a
license to be a total jerk.  No amount of feedback of any kind is
going to change this.

It does make it hard to stop reading the mailing list, though, much
like picking at a scab or watching a train wreck in slow motion.
