Chill out and dispense with the philosophy, you are no longer at Throop.

The reality of the situation is that Altium and it's customers form a
"partnership" of sorts, whether anyone wants to admit it or not.

The problem with partnerships is that they need to maintain a balance to be
productive, and when they become one sided, the productivity of the
partnership can suffer, and usually the other side loses.

Another problem with partnerships, is that their has to be good
communications between the parties. When one side stops listening, the other
side sometimes has to raise it's voice a little to be heard.

Raising your voice is sometimes very necessary and appropriate, and it does
not necessarily make you a bully.

Certainly, in an ideal partnership, there is much better and more open
communication than has been taking place in the instant sceanario.

Fortunately though, as of late, it is appearing that communications are
improving somewhat in this partnership, notwithstanding the fact that there
had to be a little raising of voices to accomplish that.
