I did. But you didn't quote it in your reply.

OK, given the phrase "of us who care about the systemd debates", you
appear to put yourself in that group.

I did. I answered with several solutions. But you didn't quote them in
your reply.

Just so I understand, your reply has absolutely no religious overtones,
right? If I had proclaimed my undying love for systemd, you would have
reacted the same way, right? Earlier you said "those of us who care
about the systemd debates", implying you care, and from the tone of
your email I'd imagine you're pro-systemd. So why are you posting a
religious post?

Which is exactly why one of my suggestions, which you did not quote in
your reply, was for the OP to switch distros.
