I really have no way to respond to such a thorough misreading of what I have said. I don't even know where to begin. For everything you claim I have said I have in fact said the exact opposite. I have no idea where you get the idea of lumping me in with those throwing a tizzy about the releases not being ready. The only thing I have said is that if we want these weekly threads to stop there needs to be better communication. How that translates in your head as me and everyone else "demanding" all sorts of things, pressuring the project, or wanting premature releases is simply beyond any ability of reasonable thought. // Brian Mathis P.S. I do take it very personally when someone mis-characterizes something I have said.
