The problem is, too many feature requests/ideas are posted to this list by
people who are asking others to make their ideas happen. Try pointing the
person to the ideas forum and a slanging match results. Try telling someone
that they should be posting support questions on the forum and the same
thing happens.

As a result of the noise people who want genuine feedback before wasting
their time creating a patch nobody wants just get drowned out, discouraged,
and give up.
