See thats just your opinion. I've had scores of people talk to me about how 
they love it, how they find it easy to use etc. Face to face, on IRC, and 
yes, in magazine reviews and online reviews.

Sure, some things are not so easy, but in general its not like climbing the 
wall you make it out to be.

The tutorial was done correctly for its purpose. It might not be the same as 
your requirement, but its purpose is fulfilled. It is not wrong.

There's simply no reason for you to continue Scribus bashing and Scribus 
contributor bashing.
