@jules, I basically agree with you here, but I feel like your “sarcasm” towards @Muragavino is too much.
I agree that his first post was not in friendly tones, but several times JUCE team members have accused us regular users of being unwelcoming towards newcomers or casual participants, which unfortunately seems exactly what’s happening here.
I believe that, as the fearless leader which you claimed to be in the past incarnation of the forum, the JUCE founder should set the good example putting some extra effort in trying to keep the composure even in the face of (seemingly) unreasonable requirements.
They may in fact be reasonable in some circumstances, and I believe the right approach is the one in @fabian post, which is helpful and explicative of the rationale behind the current behavior without sounding unwelcoming or having to change a single line of code in JUCE.
