My hat is firmly off, hence my signature, hence my personal opinion. I am allowed one yes? I have not broken any forum rules in expressing my opinion.
Would you prefer the prefix of 3rd party :p
Anyone who's actually read my posts will know my interaction with the tools and some of the developers from an early stage, but you cannot throw a blanket over them. I have not, and never will, deny the amount of effort that has been put in, or the usefulness of the apps. However I, personally, don't think that the fact we are where we are only happened by people taking it upon themselves originally without permission (and sometimes expressly against permission) of FD, should be forgotten.
So yes we're here, FD are going to communicate more with the developers, and the next time a group of them don't think there's enough communication... Well we'll just have to see. A toned down approach would suit me :) NDA's? Can't see it myself.
