|laziness, impatience, and hubris|
I think it was with good reason as do others (apparently).
"cmon guyz - plz take a good board like the phpBB.com bulletin board. Your board has absolutely no usability "
Not exactly polite. Not well thought out, just, "change sh*t". I don't think she would have had nearly any negative reaction if she had put some thought into her post and actually gave specifics of things that could be done better. A modicum of tact would have probably helped too.
Maybe people reacted harshly, but that's just human nature. If I went over to nearby Dorchester and said, "Dorchester is lame, be like Southie!", I'd imagine I'd get a lot of jabs, the only difference it being fists instead of threads.
update Never mind the title, "super ugly & damned bad board"
"To be civilized is to deny one's nature."
In reply to Re^2: plz replace this super ugly & damned bad board by a supergood one: take open source [of course]
