I don't care much about /usr/share/misc/operator, but I do care about
people making changes without discussion, or making changes with too
little discussion, or making changes that go against the consensus of
the discussion.

I would like to see this change reverted, becasue it was made with
too little discussion.

If you are not willing to discuss changes, or pay attention to other
people's opinions, then you are part of the problem.

You don't have to agree with everybody, but you do need to pay attention
to the discussion.  If no clear consensus emerges, or if the consensus
is opposite from your preferred outcome, then you may appeal to core to
make a decision.
