A while ago I ran across a HowTo from Eric Raymond:

talking about how to interact with hackers, but much of what he says is 
applicable here.
In particular:

"Never assume you are /entitled/ to an answer. You are not; you aren't, 
after all, paying for the service. You will earn an answer, if you earn 
it, by asking a substantial, interesting, and thought-provoking question 
? one that implicitly contributes to the experience of the community 
rather than merely passively demanding knowledge from others."

In your case, you have no questions to ask, nothing worth more than a 
fleeting response, if that. Like many forums of this sort, the 
Scribus-list has many people who will try to help, but it doesn't seem 
you want help at all. There is no indication that Scribus will ever be 
anything you suggest you want it to be, so it all has the flavor of a 
ruse. You apparently have no programming skills or you would write the 
perfect program you desire. You have no civil writing skills or you 
would constructively contribute or perhaps make a successful career out 
of demonstrating the ideal form of documentation that we could all 
appreciate and offer our accolades.
So you are reduced to attacking and demeaning others, projecting your 
own internal dissonance on the world as evidence of a dissonance of the 
world itself, meanwhile safe in your own assessment that yes, you are 
indeed the only intelligent person in the universe.

We can also surmise that the Scribus list is one of several sites 
periodically infested with a BandiPat hit-and-run charade.
