Minority vs. majority and stone age vs. modern... no.

What you fail to consider is that when you join a list/forum/community,
which has posted rules/guidelines/etiquette, it is only good manners
that newcomers follow those rules/guidelines/etiquette.

You are certainly welcome to propose and argue for changes.

And if you are on the losing side of the argument, nothing is
preventing you from starting a list/forum/community where your
rules/guidelines/etiquette must be adhered too.
