won't get written faster by people asking about it
That was kinda my point.
or complaining that it isn't written yet.
By which you're implying that I should try my head for size in the hat of the non-contributor, and thence align myself in the sights of the fickle finger of blame.
But if you wish to go that route, then you should consider the numbers of non-contributors--and more importantly--the numbers of ex-contributors, and ask the question: Why so many of the tens of thousands(?) that were caught up with the Pugs initiative fell by the wayside.
For that to happen, you need to encourage (some would say "hype") people into wanting to contribute.
And finally...that is exactly the point I was making. Each time the OP appears, (has to be asked), and the response is so low-key and dismissive, la petite mort goes a little deeper; spreads a little further; lasts a little longer.
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
