If I would want to change Eloraams decision and wouldn't be in my current position (= dev of a mod that's Eloraam trying to stay compatible to), i would probably try to persuade as many people as possible.
There's only one person that needs to be persuaded - and that's Eloraam. Unless and until that happens, you still haven't changed the one mind that matters in the issue.
If everyone asks Eloraam to do X, not doing X could have bad PR effects :3
Quite to the contrary - Eloraam has made it clear that she intends to the mod that she wants to play, her way. She's willing to accept suggestions but she's unwilling to let public pressure direct the course of her development.
I think you know her well enough to know that if she got a lot of flak from people about something, she'd simply stop sharing RedPower with the rest of us. No one wins in that scenario.
Eloraam can be reasoned with, but not by the means of mob rule. You're much the same way - we can observe that his previous campaign did not change your ban policy in the least.
If Saul's not even persuasive enough to convince people like me of his case, he's certainly not going to get very far changing someone like Eloraam's mind.
