Special Note: My article the other day that seemed to have created a huge controversy, was not about implementing every damn thing people wanted, but only implement things that are really needed by the majority and only when these things are not coming in contrast with the general direction of the project. For example, if someone was asking Gnome to implement a "KDE-alike control panel", that should be rejected because that design is not Gnome's way. But when someone says "make Shift+Delete to delete a file on Nautilus automatically", that's a legitimate feature request to be taken under consideration, and many users would expect it to be there already (that's not my feature request btw).
It's about market research, it's about putting together things that really need to get done (that's feedback filtered by a special team, not by the developers who are already under a lot of pressure). That's what market research is about. It's not about listen to every single idiot out there and his little or big feature request. So, don't take my article out of context and don't make it about myself or specific feature requests, because it is not so. It is about evolving a project to become better by taking in some well-structured user feedback in it. That's all.
