There are a lot of problems with NuGet, but they got this right. I do wish there was a way to mark a package as deprecated, though. For ages, there was an unofficial JQuery package that was years out of date.
That feels sort of like the online discussion equivalent of sticking your fingers in your ears and going "la la la I'm not listening".
I don't expect someone in their position to be unable to ignore a conversation and "take a break" but I would expect them to be capable of doing so without resorting to "suppressing" the ongoing group discussion.
