They are not his public, they are his CUSTOMERS. I think taking my money 
earns him some responsibility, don't you?

>Yes, it's only a hobby.

That's true, and if he were distributing the software for free as a hobby, none 
of us would have any right to bitch. HOWEVER... since we have all paid for 
the advertised functionality that comes and goes from version to version, sans 
warning or documentation about what works and what doesn't, I think there's 
a legitimate position from which to ask "Whuffo?" Especially when the tech 
support has become practically non-existant (at least from what I've seen...).

This may seem a bit harsh, but I've been trying to get answers for months. 
Maybe I need more social standing, or to re-join YCCC, or something...
