Well, the way you wrote it suggested to me that you don't want to be 
polite. Good to read that was not your intention.

Sure you have the right to post here. However you could voice your opinion 
a bit nicer, e.g. without questioning the sanity of the programmers.

Being impolite doesn't help either. You won't change anything at all 
because KDE 3.5 will not be used for any new version of Kubuntu. And the 
behaviour of the existing version will not be changed. I think you are 
about 9 months late with your complaint.
