As I have just pointed out in another thread I think it would be helpful  
to avoid sort of noise if contributers were not so touchy and frequently  
get rather irrate for no reason.

Sure everyone puts their time in for free, including those who take the  
time to report bugs and make suggestions.

Sometimes reports may communicate an aire of frustration. Though I really  
dont think that was the intention here. Often if a bug or interface defect  
is minor no-one bothers reporting. Only when it becomes a major pain and  
time waster may it get reported.

But dont expect to be molly coddled either. If someone takes the time to  
report it's because they think Gimp is a good tool, that is worth having  
and wish to contribute to it being better. That in itself is a complement  
to the work that has already been done.

Please dont expect a preamble of "thank you everso much for your free work  
on this great project , you are really clever by the way, but I have one  
little issue I'd like to bring up if I may".

It would greatly accelerate development and reduce noise if we could be a  
bit more down to Earth and in some cases a bit more humble. We all know  
emails and posts are a clumbsy for of communication, so let's all try to  
take things with a pinch of salt and concentrate on improving Gimp.

Now I have a lanczos filter to debug, so good day to all. En avant!
