First of all, you do not have to appease me.  What happened in the
past has happened already, and whether I complain or not, the fact
that the history we came up with before pushing the topic to 'next'
was suboptimal.  Nothing short of kicking it out of 'next' and
redoing as if it were a fresh topic would fix that, but we all
agreed that it is not the best way to spend our developer and
reviewer resources.

You had been given plenty of chance to do something about it after
you added "oh, it was wrong not to have a legacy fallback, and here
is a patch on the top".  This is not the time to revisit the issue.

Gagging me won't change the fact that the history we ended up is
messy.  Without getting reminded of our past mistake(s) ourselves,
what else encourages us to do better the next time?

The lesson I personally learned is that yielding to the wish to
hastily push things that are not ready to 'next' will leave us mess.
I hope the lesson submitters and mentors have learned is not that by
bombarding reviewers with too many iterations that do not address an
issue, a topic can be pushed through with the issue unresolved with
reviewer fatigue.
