Am I not correct in saying that gimpshop a tool using gimp?  Judging by the 
helpful replies I have received gimpshop is also of considerable interest to 
many users of gimp who use this list. 

 It might be considerably improved by a being better supported by those who 
are advocates of gimp. 

I rather gather there are those who disparage gimpshop and wish it to fail and 
those who wish it to succeed but are afraid of offending some members of the 
former group.

Maybe gimp could benefit from a more catholic and generous approach being 
espoused by everyone.

IMHO the gimp community could benefit from the offer of an interface that more 
closely resembles photoshop. How that might be achieved maybe another matter. 
Your encouragement of all alternatives might lead to a wider adoption and 
respect for gimp. While I am sure you were not ill intentioned  IMHO the tone 
of response  did not make me feel welcomed or helped and I have reason for 
believing I am not the only one to have reached such a conclusion.
