Sorry Paul, but that takes the biscuit. Your "wear them down til they
can't be bothered replying" style of argument is beginning to grate
somewhat. Suggesting he should be grateful to you is ridiculous - surely
you must realise that, unless you actually do believe the sun shines out
of your own ass?

I agree with everything Jeff wrote, and unfortunately the attitude he
speaks of is not just driving users away, but developers such as myself.
Why would I want to be associated with a project whose public face can
be so arrogant, unhelpful and frankly rude?

"Seriously guy, you need to lighten up and understand that ideas get
discussed and debated"

Indeed. Discussion and debate means listening to other peoples'
opinions, not just your own.

Regards,

Rob.
