I disagree.  If a change is gratuitous, and someone call's it out for
being so, it's not a reason to get offended.  Even if someone call's a
change stupid, one should take a large step back before taking
offense, just because they were responsible for the change.  Defend
the change, give the reasons it's not gratuitous/stupid/ugly/whatever,
but keep calm and carry on.

This sort of back-and-forth sniping should be taken off list.
