Actually, it was a leading Mint dev.

I don't consider this guy a nut or a wacko. He has an opinion and he
is entitled to it! Although I disagree with his opinion, it is not his
opinion that I refer to. It is his presenting his opinion on the
official Mint website and making an official request (remember, he is
a leading Mint dev) that we not use, contribute to, or donate to Mint.

The rest of the Mint team did take action and remove the post. I
appreciate the Mint team's efforts in making a very usable system out
of the box, so there will be no mistake. I do not personally use it,
but I acknowledge the need for such as distro.
