Instead of forcing down your opinion down everyone's throats, there are
nicer alternatives that need attention instead. How about you create a
patch set (instead of threatening emails) that adds the ability to
detect a bad boot and have grub prompt the user for an action the next
time the system boots?
"Boot into older kernel?", "Boot with safe graphics mode?", etc.
Then grub can remain hidden by default to provide a nice end-user
experience and if booting fails a, less technically inclined, user gets
shown some alternative boot methods.
