I am trying again, in hopefully a more civilized manner...

By constantly repeating that your opinion would not matter and that someone
has a plan to force this feature through you indirectly say:
*) That the decision process for an EEP and the Technical Board at Erlang/OTP
   at Ericsson can not be trusted to make a good decision for the Erlang
   language and the community.
*) That the community does not want this feature.

This is attacking the decision process itself instead of contributing to
the decision.  To me this feels like a way to force your point of view
through in this decision.
