Dude, stop misrepresenting my position.

Either we kill them entirely, since they are going away eventually
anyway, or we put them on a regular schedule like leap years. The
current system sucks too bad to be allowed to continue.

Like this silly discussion, leap seconds take a hugely
disproportionate amount of time and money in the implementation of
timing systems that I've been involved in.

All the rest is polemics..
