You some folks threatening to leave hubs? Good to know - but when dudes?
yo yo yo ... give me a joint!
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
set this forum on tumble rather than spin... maybe that'll work
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.

Let me preface this by stating I am not trying to be mean or a troll. In fact, I avoid the forums because I don't want to get involved. But with so many posts about the topics I'm about to discuss, I wanted...

I just noticed an itching sensation on my forearm and looked to see a bug bite. I'm guessing mosquito or spider. I have no idea how long ago it got me but it did. I didn't see anything and still don't. Nothing flying or...

may I ask why?With all the hassle just to get a piece published, from overtly strict copy right laws, now to this. I now wonder if the place is even worth the hassle.

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned...
