It is both.

I am not going to decide based on anyone's "advocacy".  I intend to
look at the issues carefully and see what conclusions really follow
from them.

  > Does Clang's popularity inform your decision-making process?

Not in the way you want it to.

You demand I draw certain specific conclusions from that, and take
certain actions.  I can see other possible conclusions to draw from
the same facts.

You won't see it here.  Your kind of "advocacy" is no help to me in
making the right decision.  I'm not going to take counsel from people
who are trying to pressure me.

You don't "need" to do anything about this.  It is not your
responsibility, and you are not by boss.

I have now quoted three successive insults from your message.

I'm not interested in discussing a difficult decision with someone who
treats me as you do.  Rather, I will wait, forget about what you have
said, and then make an unprejudiced decision after consulting others
whose advice I value.  This will take time.
