My apologises to those who have taken my post out of context and feel they have been attacked in some way. Not the case.
I have nothing but praise and admiration for those who contribute productively to this great forum software. If I didn't think highly of it, I would not have invested my time in promoting it for the past few years.
It's all to easy to misinterpret the typed word, or it's intent.
I stand corrected on those points that clarified my misinterpretation of others posts and I thank you for that.
You certainly have my respect for taking this stand.
If there are more of you, SMF will indeed survive(the true supporters of it).
I am a bit amazed at how team members have reacted..but I'll chalk it up to them feeling a bit cornered. After all, after working these past months to finally get SMF to *stable* RC final versions(and final version will not be far away then, thats a given) and then get members complain about something MOST of them have no stake in(they were not on the team back then) feels unfair.
For myself I was really fed up with SMF for a good time..but now I see positivism back in again, and that got to be a good sign for the software.
So chill out, enjoy it and contribute again - if you are so inclined - in mods/themes. What can you loose? The ghosts are gone, and the software is still here.
