Everytime there is a news on Phoronix even remotly related to GNOME there is a sudden giant influx of mostly useless posts, often bordering on just being plain trolling.
For once I would like to just read the comments/forums concerning a GNOME related news and actually read some discussion related to the story and not the 5015th variation of "And this clearly proves that GNOME fails/sucks/is useless" and "No you have no idea. insert DE here is so much better".

Or how about this nearly decade-old GTK dialog bug (which you can see in the pair of screenshots below):
