Why do you guys always break down criticism into emotional responses?
You ask for more info, are given it, then you respond in an emotional
tone to cover up your inability to see help when it's offered you.
You're mired in your own self pity & inabilities, trying to analyze
others from a point of view that is obscure at best. I attacked no one
or said anything demeaning to anyone, but is that the case with you or
the others that sent attacks covered in emotion towards me? You
speculate many things in your mind about other people without trying to
understand those people. You make vague assumptions while trying to
belittle others to make yourself feel better. You hardly understand
people as much as you try to make out, which in turn shows how small
minded & cowardly you are. Many of you get a crowd mentality when dealt
criticism. As long as several will support your rantings, you feel safe
in thinking you are right to do so. You're delusional at best, but I
guess that's how you come to some of your conclusions.
If I didn't feel a desire to be here, to offer criticism, to offer
support, to try to help, do you think I would continue to bother? I
feel strongly that Scribus still has potential. Whether the developers
still feel that way is not up to me, but it won't stop me from voicing
objections about the directions they are taking. If they or you are not
secure in your own abilities to make change, then all is lost already.
Actually, they are still searching for intelligent life on Earth. None
has been found yet. I guess since you mention the universe, you
consider yourself more god like, in that you can see so much more?
