You're absolutely right, John.
I think most of us have seen these situations erupt from time to time in other forums too. It's often difficult to be sure if someone is joking or just being sarcastic/ironic, and in our case we've just had a very heated debate about the future of Lumion, so I totally understand that we're all a little on edge at the moment.
Research has actually shown that the number of conflicts in the workplace can be greatly reduced if people simply sit down and tell each other more about themselves.
I'm not saying that we all just need to hold hands, form a circle and sing around the bonfire together and all the concerns you have regarding the future of Lumion will disappear as if by magic
But knowing more about each other has the potential to foster feelings of solidarity and respect for each other. I'd rather listen to the soft-spoken guy in the corner who looks you straight in the eye and tells you what's on his mind than to a guy who is shouting so loudly that you can barely hear what he's trying to say.
I've had the privilege to get to know some of you quite well over the past few months, and all I can say is that we're incredibly fortunate that you guys have chosen Lumion. Things could have gone very differently if you hadn't. It takes guts to put all your faith in a completely new product.
I hope that the new features show that we actually do listen to you. Sure, we don't have the manpower to grant every request but this is at least a start.
