What's so funny about this viewpoint is that it demands that it be pandered to by expressing anger. "No one should try to be nice in this way because it makes me mad!" That's not going to help anything.

Also, your goals are exactly the same as the ones you're angry about. These editors are also trying to use docs to guide you and provide information. They advance the argument that a neutral, non-condescending tone is a better way to do that. Is that worth getting livid over? Why such anger?
