This is one of the most ridiculous things one can say during a Boost review.

It's like freeing yourself from any critique. Your vote only counts if
you've implemented a library that can do this, this and that. So I'll
implement one feature that nobody uses today and then nobody can criticize
my library. What's the purpose of the review then? If the review pleases
you, it's one more approval. If the review displeases you, you just need to
run to “you aren't Beast author nor any library close to that so your
opinion don't count”.

I'd **never** reply such nonsense in reviews done to libraries of mine.
