Actually, Flaming Altium has apparently resulted in Altium beginning to listen to users, sans ATS, etc.
What was effective was the cogent and coherent commentary of users who found problems with, for example, ATS. I really doubt that much, if anything, was gained by the flames except to identify, for all the world to see, the people not to invite to the next party or the next company.... A few of us work for the government and don't have to worry about details like politeness and thoughtfulness.

It is generally true that people who walk around angry find, they think, some desireable response from those whom they berate, insult, or threaten. The bully got some "respect," the screaming brat got what he wanted just so that he would shut up, the yelling restaurant patron is appeased. Or tossed out on his ear, depends on the mood of the management.

But when long-term relationships are involved, with parties who are free to make other choices, rage and bullying tend to leave the bully isolated or worse.

One way to think of Altium is as our employee. There are some bosses who berate and insult their employees. It probably worked somewhere, sometime, for that boss, and besides, he gets to dump all his frustrations on someone else. And, living his life like that, he's going to have lots of frustrations.
