The community and the core team had an opportunity to view those objections. After that time, a decision was made, having considered all the stated pros and cons which included the ones that you are now repeating. What "considerations" are you looking for?

You're asking me to take you at your word but I have no reason to trust that the problem has been as carefully considered as you claim.

That said, closing out the thread in a way that clearly violates the code of conduct (and thus the core sense of courtesy and professionalism we want to maintain on the list) isn’t effective either. I think the thread should stop here, and remedial actions will be taken to stem this negative dialogue from continuing.
Thanks for stepping in Ted. I’m very happy with how Swift Evolution has been going and I’m happy to see that when the Code of Conduct is violated, it is recognised and dealt with swiftly (no pun intended).
