Another good example here is this very complaint.  A real free project would have developers who are held accountable for their actions.  One reason I sent this complaint to this list is because there's simply no where to take it.  And there has been no response from anyone in an official capacity.  These developers are abusive and give misinformation, and if you confront it in the bug report, they delete comments and threaten to block you.  If I was to work the complaint up the chain of command, guess whose desktop it would land on?

There's no way to hold these developers accountable for anything they do or say, which is why they continue to treat people in this manner.  When users or developers complain about any engineering choices, they are likewise simply disregarded.  Sure sounds like Red Hat is running the show.

Guess who wrote the GNOME code of conduct (Red Hat employee), including the idea that we must assume they mean well (a very broad, easily abused rule, which they themselves don't follow).  Gee, I wonder why they needed to add that.  Are people distrusting them all over the place?

You can read my Rotting In Threes article if you haven't seen it for more examples of how these developers were and are treating people - this is hardly a new problem in your project:
