I agree that JM's complaints are baseless and silly.  But they are not 
attacks on people.  Criticizing the product is not criticizing the authors.

You should stop attacking him.  The best way to reduce the noise from JM 
is to ignore him.  Your "defense" of the core developers is at least as 
distracting and detracting from this list's purpose as JM's baseless 
criticisms.

The first step with a troll is to ignore them.
