Thank you. I really mean that, thank you. I’ve been getting a lot of asks thanking me for XKit, and donations. I really appreciate this, and I know that you know the post I’ve made yesterday was not made for any of you.
Let me clarify that I love every XKit user. That post (and it’s addendum) was made to people who don’t donate, don’t make any suggestions, don’t file any bug reports, and then when something goes wrong, writes a 4 page rant on how rotten I am, calling me childish names, and how much they want to “punch me in the face” and stuff. I don’t usually make posts like this, and if you look into the archive of this blog, you’ll see that I’ve been posting here for over 2 years, and that you can count the “editorial” posts with one hand.
That post was directed to people who think it’s their right to demand (let me repeat, demand) things from me or threaten me because they’ve downloaded XKit. I just don’t like this “I’ve downloaded your extension, I demand respect and answers and functions added, now! You should be thanking me, I’ve downloaded it!” mentality.
To clarify: “Hey, you should add a feature that automatically adds tags” is something I have no problem with, and enjoy getting as an ask. “I’ve downloaded this shit but it doesn’t have unfollower checker, are you gonna add that soon or I’m gonna uninstall this crap and switch to another extension”, is not.
For a better example, take a look at the Missing E tag: the creator of Missing E moved to another country, got a divorce and looking for a job (and posted about this on the Missing E blog), but people under the tag are cursing at him and his product for not being updated. Apparently, for some people, he has to update his product immediately, even after all this. Yesterday’s post was directed at those people.
My respect and love for everyone who writes bug reports, suggests functionality, donates and promotes XKit is stronger than ever.
