I really wish people would quit being so over-sensitive like this.  How
many disclaimers must be posted?  We are ALL aware that nothing is
guaranteed nor supported in a volunteer project such as this one.

Is there still no room for positive feedack and discussion from
developers and end users alike on how to approve things?

Let's not assume the OP is attacking anyone.  I'm assuming he's looking
for a way to help.
