  • The subject says it all. Rest assured that there is plenty of people who appreciate your effort. It's just that if something is working as expected (or even better), nobody typically talks about it much.
    Thanks for keeping up the great work!

    • I know most people appreciate the changes, progress and direction, that wasn't what I was getting at, but thank you for saying so :)

      Unfortunately some people expect me to understand "it's broken" with no relevant information such as error messages or even the page they were looking at. When those same people tell me I should buy a new desktop or laptop, or tell me to target an audience that is irrelevant, I have to wonder why they bother to the send the email in the first place. Ranting at me isn't going to get their problem fixed.

      • There are these people who think they deserve to get everything. I cannot say "without giving anything" as some of them are even writing Open Source code but most of them don't.

        The best you can do is to disregard them or maybe to give a short reply, "patches are welcome".

        Most of them won't bother you again.

        Some might learn from that.

        Just make sure you hear the silent majority who appreciates your work.
