hi timothy j,

well, yes, you're ranting is not very interesting to me. the problems 
you document may be of interest but are bit too much mixed up (and not 
separated from the ranting).

my suggestions (which  are generally valid for this list)

- write one question per mail

- change subject when you ask new questions

- first ask if you understood correctly how scribus works, if you're 
doing it the supposed way; avoid putting judgements in your sentences 
and rember: there is more than one way to achieve a goal (and not all 
apps support all ways)

- always praise the devs and the people who are helping you (it's not 
that they want or need it: but it increases the chances you get an 
answer or that your wishes get implemented!)

- (if you're so determined to test scribus as you seem to be, please 
install also a copy of the development version: you will see if the 
issues you have, have already been fixed by the devs)

(clearly, only some of the points above may apply to you...)

i have seen few lists as open minded as the scribus' one and few 
development teams who are more keen to implement the suggestions they 
get from their users... but, sometimes, it still needs some time (and 
efffort) to get recognition for your good ideas... and sometimes you 
will be proved that your good ideas were not as good as you thought!

ok, enough ranting for today!

have fun
