Richard, you have accused about half a dozen different Emacs
contributors of hostility by now and have threatened a number of
things, from ignoring people to ominous warnings about actions you'll
take.  People are participating on Emacs development and discussing on
this list not for the purpose of annoying you and making Emacs and GNU

There is, as far as I can see, not a _single_ person apart from you on
this list who considers it a good idea to start Emacs with a splash
screen when one asks it to edit a file.  So we are trying to come up
with a way of achieving your goals that has the least negative impact
with regard to Emacs and GNU acceptance.  And it does not help when
you are threatening everybody who tries to help with the complicate
task of implementing your goals in a manner compatible to the needs of
Emacs users.
