Hi :)
So you are saying that posting a bug-report and co-operating with the devs
politely is "shouting and pointing"?

That is all that Tanstaafl was doing before suddenly getting attacked by
Charles, Sophie, Werner, Florian and others at the beginning of this
thread.  All i have seen him do since then is to try to defend himself and
attemtp to explain his situation to a hostile audience.  A couple of us
have attempted to stand by him but either been ignored or also attacked.
Any chance of answering Paul's last post?
Regards from
Tom :)

Anything could easily fail at any time.

        All software is buggy.

If something does fail then users are expected to fix it for
themselves ?

        I don't know how you make that stuff up. There are a huge number of
bugs filed (and fixed) each week from companies and individuals around
the project.

        My thesis is that shouting and pointing is not a good strategy for
interesting volunteers in your bug; and demanding XYZ is a particularly
unhelpful approach; grow the ecosystem of people contributing to
improving quality by either contributing yourself, or paying someone
else to is by contrast a constructive thing to do =)
