Something that never ceases to amaze me, in work and in side projects - people always complain about the thing that isn't done yet, like 'What were you thinking not doing this thing?" and somehow putting all the things that have been done out of their mind, as if time isn't finite and linear and this one thing they want is more important that all the other things, and I'm clearly stupid for not doing it before the other stuff. #theVent
@oppen I get a lot of those. I hate that it's always phrased as a question instead of a feature request. "Why isn't this doing X", instead of "I'd like for it to do X".
@flame most requests and reports are really nicely relayed, but it's at least 20% that are rude which is higher than I'd like
We realized after a while that if we do implement that feature, we never hear from them again, they were not actually interested in the feature, but were using the issues as a platform to spread vimism.
@oppen @neauoire @flame I'm 100% with you on your vent here and all the supportive comments in solidarity. Sometimes it's my own brain going “why haven't you done this yet” while ignoring everything I have achieved so far!
But a tiny, shameful part of me is wondering if I'm reading it correctly that there is a specific Masto instance for Vim people and also if it is a fun place to check out 😰
@oppen I found that it's rarely well intentioned, half the time when I get these passive-aggressive feature requests, it's for things that are already implemented or that the person will obviously not use.
