Both rules being mentioned here are not useful to be strictly followed.

Top-posting is allowed on this list. Discriminating by top-posting is not OK.

The rule you mentioned is to wait for patches that no-one wants to apply/review.

Your interpretation of rule to wait for patch committing at least one
week is dangerous.

As I'm patch creator and code maintainer I'm free to apply any patches.

So to conclude: there is no rule to minimal wait for patch to be
applied after it is reviewed.

It is just that some developers want and like to block my commits, and
this is indeed childish behavior of them as you like to write.
