Drop reference to 'quality time' in admin logout message

Description

This relates to the template file at django/contrib/admin/templates/registration/logged_out.html

The standard logged-out message currently reads:
"Thanks for spending some quality time with the Web site today."

Quality time traditionally refers to time spent with family or close friends, not web sites. In my view, this jokey US centric message ought to be replaced with something more neutral, and less likely to irritate.

My suggestion is:
"You are now logged out of the administration area."

In the 5 years Django is public, you're the first person I'm aware of that has called the logout message "irritating". Personally, I think it's a nice little touch of personality, rather than just being a sea of bland.

If you disagree, you can easily override it on your own sites.

I disagree. I think it makes senses to allow admin and management peoples to change
default admin messages more easily. I wonder if this could be a task for the django
new messaging framework, but in my view allowing small edits to the django admin
templates would be a nice thing, and for editing the admin loggout message too,
as not every administrators has knowledge for editing Django templates.

Reopening ticket and setting it to 'Design decision needed'.

You *can* change the admin message easily, it *isn't* a task for the messaging framework, and you *have* a design decision. If you disagree with the design decision, take it up on django-developers.

It's quite irritating ... if it were actually funny rather than condescending it might be a different story.

Developer here is an asshole. Not the first I've encountered here unfortunately, shitting on important bugs and others like this (that aren't), but serve to reinforce an environment hostile to suggestion.

Per the contributing guide (and ignoring the inappropriate expletive) you shouldn't reopen bugs closed as "wontfix" by core developers. As stated by Russell, if you disagree, you should start a discussion on the django-developers mailing list. Thanks!
