Now, to set some logic straight:

It is not. It is about the perception in the KDE community that it is not
treated fairly.

The UI itself, even though it is part of the problem, is not significant in
comparison to that. Especially since according to the statistics we have only
a low number of new users anyway. What you mistakenly see as a contradiction
is different people expressing their opinion and some of them valuing more
new users than (existing or potential) contributors.

- If this is about a majority of the userbase demanding special
treatment for _their_ desktop of choice come on out and say so openly,
but don't use a transparent pretext, pretending this was all for the
good of the project.

It is about the minority of the userbase not demanding special treatment for
their desktop of choice. Or anybody else for that matter.

But since you seem to so much believe in how you see the situation that you
not only disagree with the position of the other side (which would be ok) but
you don't even know what the position is, there is apparently no point in
discussing this with you.
