Although I am probably just being a stupid person, I really dislike this argument "If you don't like it, fix it yourself".

While it might feel offensive that people are complaining left and right about the new version, it is actually a compliment. I am not trying to be a love-all hippie here, but people are complaining because they really fucking love the solution jQuery put out there to support multiple browsers.

Don't feel offended, feel proud.

I wouldn't call it "if you don't like it, fix it yourself." I'd call it "you need code that does X? We don't have that, but we have something that does 99.9% of X, and you can have it for free!"
