Nope, Stuart; I decline to let you palm that card.
MythTV is a *community* as much as it is a pile of source code; a *large*
part of its utility stems from the very fact that that has been true for
all these years, whether a person's contribution to that has been code,
documentation, wiki building, wishlisting, or just hanging out and making
it a friendly place to be.
This is not "why I personally hate forums"; this is "why forums objectively
have negative value compared to other forms of computer moderated community
And "I would have shunted it off into the OT forum" *is, in fact* the
sort of "insufferable arrogance" I declined to actually accuse someone of,
just a few moments ago.
