I think this is one of the things that irritate some of the long term users who spend a lot of time trying to help newcomers and people who have problems. Suddenly someone new comes in and visit the forum, posting only to complain about something.
So your response to those people is to call them whiners and failied writers - you, specifically, are one of the worst about that. You whine about people bitching and moaning, only to whine yourself because people don't want to hang around in forums because they might, oh I don't know, have actual writing to do.
Yes, you're so very helpful. Give yourself a cookie.
If L&L were smart, they'd ditch comments like yours that you post on almost anyone offering up a complaint, pissing all over them. However, they apparently have zero intention on moderating their own forums - an area that should be a selling point if they truly want to capture Windows users - and that, my friend, is why people do not hang around here to see anything helpful.
Katherine once responded rudely to someone, then posted a followup that said there is only one rule here in the forums: be nice. Certainly doens't appear that way.
Go ahead and have your last word about people being failed writers blaming their tools for their lack of/shitty writing, or being whiners, and your compatriots like Astaff who can't be bothered to respond properly to someone making idiotic threats about not using Scrivener can join right in. You can then be your happy little club where people shouldn't dare to criticize L&L and their abysmal record for shipping WinV3. I won't be back to see it, so feel free to launch your normal, usual attacks.
