I simply wouldn't be able to afford it. And the same would be fair, I suspect, for most wrimos and other writing enthusiasts out there, who - surprise! - don't make any money with it.
So please, just stop with this dramatic "We're robbing L&L!" stuff. Honestly. Please stop. This feels like a slap on the face every time. Go take the developers out to dinner, if you feel like you owe them. Donate to a charity in their name. In other words, do something other than trying to covertly humiliate users who do not make money with Scrivener and do not think that it should cost like an MS Office suite.
Conversely, some folks need to acknowledge that the upside of this price point (they can afford it because it's not a major office application suite) comes with a downside (it won't have all the esoteric features of a major office application suite, or the Scrivener equivalent). There is a special "I'm the paying customer, so you have to do what I say" entitlement (and no, I'm not talking about you just to be clear) that some people have when demanding their pet specific feature even after L&L has transparently explained why that feature would not be a good investment.
