D has a nice community IF you fit into the mold. As a Windows
user i am frankly fed up with people giving responses as
"report it, fix it yourself" when it has been clearly stated
that i do as much.
Or when a opinion is voiced about potential improvements, it
comes down to "do it yourself or pay for it".
It is my personal opinion that:
* Do it yourself
* Pay for it
* Report it ( when the author has stated that they did )
Those comments add nothing to any discussions, they sidetrack
discussion and only alienate people. Just do a google search
and its horrible how many posts show up with this type of
comment or variation.
Some people feel overly aggressive in defending D from
criticism that it only alienates people. It has alienated me.
Whenever i think about D, it positive feeling to move forward
is always matched with dread thinking about some people or
comments when i want to talk about issues.
The nice people here do not way up, to the people with a chip
on there shoulder, that just ruin your day/mood.
It also does not help when comments boil down how "windows
users do not contribute" when they actually do. Its very
condescending and just scares away people.
The reason you hear this is because you are getting an
explanation of how things work around here. You write "Those
comments add nothing to any discussions" and in a sense that is
true. But that's because there really isn't a reason to have a
discussion. You are getting an answer. There is nothing to be
gained from saying "someone should do this and this and this".
When you get those responses, it is simply people explaining how
things are done. It wouldn't make sense to go into a clothing
store and complain that they don't sell fried chicken. If you're
in the market for fried chicken, don't go to a clothing store.
The things you want - a perfect out-of-the-box Windows
experience, where you can make requests for others to do the
things you want - is not what D has to offer.
