IMHO, that's not actually how you act and respond.
When I saw this latest thread come up on SSSD, I was like; "Oh, no! Rowland's going to have puppies!", because you get so terribly exercised about SSSD questions.
If you don't want to field any questions about SSSD, then don't.
If you don't want to offer support on SSSD, then don't.
But, again IMO, you aren't pleasant about any SSSD questions. I'm not sure why it's such a point of contention.
I mean, look at this response.

And I will be happy to 'NACK' it, we do not need another idmap backend,
well not unless it it is a total rewrite to give us something like how
RID works on Windows and is the only idmap backend.
There would be no friction if everyone would accept that using sssd with
Samba is no longer supported by anyone. Red-Hat could make this more
obvious by removing sssd-winbind-idmap, their documentation says it use
That's your response to your own Samba team member, JA.
That's not just simply saying "It's not supported." IMO, that's being borish. And that's certainly not the only time you were abrasive in the thread. [Again, these are all my *opinions,* I have no idea if anyone else agrees or not.]
You do a lot of fielding of questions on Samba, and that's great. It's a thankless job, and I'm sure it's a grind.
I just think a deep breath occasionally when you're frustrated might be handy.
