Timothy, your response might be interpreted as an attempt to discourage the
user community from reporting problems or questioning apparent design flaws.
I would think that a discussion group like this is the proper forum for

project that doesn't encourage comments from the user community is cutting
itself off from a valuable source of feedback.
