The quoted text below is a fragment from the discussion topic: http://forums.boxee.tv/showthread.php?t=52641&page=3
and I think It is worth to paste here:
"Every update firmware comes with a new bug. An issue that don't exist in the past. They need to check these bugs before launching a mandatory update. And the worst is that bug alredy exists in the non-mandatory update. So, if they promote it, its logical to fix it before.
I have rights to complain about something that I just can't think It is correct, even if it is a techno 'futile' thing.
The problem with a lot of people is that they just give up so easily or just don't even try to impose their voice.
Things don't change with this behavior and the Dev's actions just reflect that.
People don't start being rude randomly. Every action has a story and a reason behind them.
Although i'm pointing only my point of view, I do know they probaly have another. Maybe they are tired, or don't like their jobs, or whatever reason that justify their actions. But you know what? Without a minimum conversation, the impression is that they just don't give any importance to that project. The user talk approximation is a important factor in my opinion.
And maybe, just maybe, after reading this, they do change something."
