No, I'm using the same verbiage I did before. Quoting myself:
"Hauke, this entire argument is what I meant when I talked about gilding
the lily repeatedly. If you can find half a dozen *real users* who are
being *really impacted* by this, I'd love to hear about them."
A "real user" is not a user that technically exists but has only ever
used GnuPG once and is unlikely to do so again; a real user is one who
has a significant need for GnuPG and uses it to address these needs.
"Really impacted" doesn't mean an impact barely greater than epsilon; it
means significant impact.
My usage is consistent. If you've chosen to reinterpret my words as
"existence" rather than "significance," that's on you; you've dropped my
threshold from significance to "it's okay if the user and the impact are
completely insignificant, just so long as they exist," which is clearly
not what I meant at all.
