Complaining is fine, it's a free country. :)

What I meant is that often, when reporting a warning, people presume
that it would be unreasonable not to fix the warning, which I think is
inappropriate in the sense that they don't recognize that their ask
may be entirely based on a personal preference others might find
unreasonable. Perhaps "rude" isn't the right word to describe this,
