Well, I disagree - you seem to want to discount the opinion of those
50,000 users, though, which is why I think you think that it's

Those are the ones we are discussing, not the thousands of other who
are happy with the help they receive.

I don't think this is a productive conversation at this point. You have
your perspective, and Jim has his based on decades of experience and
tens of thousands of forum users.

In the end, what matters in an Open Source project is what volunteers
(or companies) offer in terms of contributions. We clearly have a nice
number of volunteers who support the forums, and asking for support of
the forums on this list is perfectly valid, too.

Beyond that, just agree to disagree on this one?

Thanks, Gerald, I agree that there are aspects that are non-productive
when we get to the point of banging heads rather than collaborating, and
looking back over my own replies, I can see that Per & I hit that point
some time ago. So I'll duck out of that part of the conversation.
