Hmmm ... I hope I'm not sounding like I'm asking people to not
complain. That was not my point - quite the contrary! I thought the
original thread was fairly exemplary. Someone found what was considered
to be a bug, and the group analyzed it - cool!
No, I'd MUCH rather people pointed out the flaws. Simply doing so means
participating in the development process. The new users have a grand role
to play in that they are in the best position to point out where the
emperors clothes are missing or just don't quite fit right.
