  • It seems to me that the frustration level of those posting problems is increasing with time - understandable because they've had time to gain some familiarity and not yet solved their problems.
  • It seems to me that the frustration level of those answering the problems is increasing with time - understandable because the same problems are reported over and over without any indication that the poster attempted to see if the problem has already been addressed
  • It seems to me that both are engaging in A GREAT DEAL MORE POST SHOUTING and name calling - both of which express the frustration but do not enhance communication

May I suggest - Don't press the post button until you are sure you'd gladly justify your post  to Jesus in person - immediately.Idea

Some of us would probably follow the example of Jonah or Elijah Geeked

Seriously, that was good advice. I am one who—far too often—needs to heed your words.

Interesting, and lucid, observation.

On the one hand, I understand the frustration of the consumer; the software is expensive.  On the other hand, I agree with Logos' strategy to release the product with some unfinished business in it, in order to make it available and finish it out as a work in progress.  And I can imagine the frustration on their side, as they aren't free to express it as is the consumer.  (Think about it....Logos is providing this very platform (forums) from which a handful of folks are using to take potshots, and I've seen only professionalism and courtesy from the Logos folks here in response.)

I don't know how Logos can sell the product as cheaply as they do, considering the complexity and size of the database of works they have available.  And I'm sure the folks at Logos have learned the truth of the old adage, "No good deed goes unpunished."

Bottom line for me is, I agree with the intent of the original post and hope I (and others) will be as patient with Logos when I need an answer as I want folks to be with me.  This product is something I cannot duplicate on my own (and I don't know anybody personally who could), so I won't look a gift horse in the mouth and I'll try to be grateful for the software even when I can't figure something out!

I believe fully in the providence of God; the glitches in L4 and A4 didn't surprise Him, and I know these tools will be used to glorify Him and further His kingdom, in spite of a few bugs and impatient children thrown in the mix.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.
