    when the venture capitalists close this shop I guess.. until then if they show the VC's this shop is viable w/ a few more years and a few less cash infusions to keep it going then I guess i'll stay around for awhile

    Sometimes people get worked up.  Sometimes it's just because they misunderstood something and got themselves hopping mad over nothing at all.

    Keep this in mind:  you don't get angry about a place you don't care about.  If Facebook ever reaches the point where I can't take it any more, you won't find me ranting about it.  I stopped using LinkedIn some time back - if you search hard enough you can find me complaining a little bit before I left, but basically I just stopped out of total disinterest.

    Some of the folks kicking and screaming may have ulterior motives, but most might just be people who really like HP and the people who are part of it.  They are upset about something, maybe legitimately, maybe not, but if they truly did not care, they'd just fade away.

    Their ranting and raving has benefit to HP even when it is totally misplaced.  Their misunderstanding can help HP staff do a better job with FAQs and feature announcement posts in the future.  If nobody ever complained, there is no feedback to goad improvement.

    So, yeah: tempest in the teapot, annoying, don't let the screen door hit your butt and all that.  But there is value also.

      There is certainly value in complaining or asking questions on specific points.  Being uncivil, or spamming the forums with the same points or questions over and over again is unhelpful and just plain rude, however.
