Hi :)
This "blame the user" mentality belongs more properly in the MS and
proprietary world.  It makes more sense in the OpenSource world but
generally i don't see it in other OpenSource projects (apart from
Evolution) and i'm quite glad of that.  It's one of the many reasons i'm
glad to be mostly freed from the MS world.

When users rant against volunteers, that won't work whatever the

Tanstaafl seems to be being blamed for at leat 2 contradictory things here.
1.  for bringing up his pet bug too often
2.  for not bringing it up often enough.

He is not blamed for bringing his pet bug, but for not being proactive
on it and for waiting that a volunteer take care of it without helping
in any way to have it solved.
When you use LibreOffice in a corporate environment, you have to take
care of the investment made by your company and take care also to
protect the software used there. Being in a waiting attitude without
helping things to happen put you at the risk to lose your investment or
lose your software by not sustaining the ecosystem.

Kind regards
