.... that it often seems like some of the most aggressive posts, or shall we say a number of those demanding fixes and being really quite rude in their posts, often appear with no wings. I’m talking in this Bugs forum and also in Feature Requests.
I simply feel that it’s a bit rich being that demanding when there is no sign of that individual supporting the site.
At the time of posting for example “being a leaderless spaceship that has been given up by its owners “ was written by someone not sporting wings. As was “What's the matter that this site gets worse instead of better?”
I’ve said before that more transparency would be ideal, and note that since then a post from BC Support has appeared about server upgrade. Who knows what fabulous things that will bring, who knows what it won’t.
I’m as frustrated as the next guy not knowing what is needed, what helps & what doesn’t, but I (for example) wouldn’t dream of walking into a shop and telling the owner that modernisation need to be done before I’d buy something - if you get my drift.
In short, I’m not telling people they have to buy wings. I’m simply asking those who don’t to be a little more mindful of their open complaining and rather aggressive requests for bug fixes out in the open forums.
and anyway that's not how most websites run nowadays. It's 2018, not 1995, saying that there is money and effort needed to run a website sounds a bit irksome, BC is not the only site around that needs money or effort to exist, all websites do!
I totally disagree that any sites are 100% free to use. Think about those sites you are thinking of. I’ll guess that there are ads running along the side column or similar. Nothing online is “free”. There is a money generator somewhere in there.
