The page you are referring to is clearly marked, by myself in the first 
paragraph, as a page for brainstorming. As usual with brainstorming, 
people are allowed, even asked to think outside the box and write down 
anything they can think of; the "Free Ponies" item that you have an 
issue with has been added to make it clear to relative outsiders that 
this is really only a random collection of thoughts and not a wishlist, 
or even a prioritized list.

Next time you find something on the Wiki that you don't immediately 
understand, please refrain from publicly branding it "childish trolling".

Please don't forget that all the effort you put into software 
development can easily be nullified by a few inconsiderate words. You 
can spend a man-month on a new feature only to have it rejected by a 
the community that you carelessly insulted. It would be sad to see all 
that Knight money vanish in a puff of smoke just because people turned 
out to work against rather than with each other.
