are you suggesting i took it out of context or somehow distorted the meaning of it? how so?

i believe i represented your statement fairly. we both said "most."

later, you asked me for "survey proof" ...but i was under the assumption we both agreed on this point, based on your statement above.

don't get mad at me b/c you contradicted what you yourself said, ...that i just happened to agree with.

when did i ever say the request was invalid? i simply said i don't think it will be a high priority, and tried to explain why. and yes, numbers do matter. the devs tend to respond to things asked for in high numbers. that doesn't mean they ONLY respond to things req'd in high numbers, but that is the general M.O.

now, they also respond to things that crash the app, even if its in small numbers, but i believe, based on what i know about the app, how this works, and previous exp with the devs, that this may be an issue where they pass, at least for now, b/c no obvious better solution exists. i qualify that tho, b/c i am not "dev-able" and no expert on coding or those matters. my opinion is only as informed as i am... so take that to mean whatever you like.

If I see a post asking for something and if I know a way to have WA do it, I post it. You do the same. I don't care if it helps one person or a million. I don't even care if my suggestion is used. It's enough for me to just make the effort to help. I don't care why you do it, it's enough that you do (when you're helpful).

I join the threads of others for problems I'm also having, in the hope of finding a solution or work-around.
at no point did i criticize you or anyone else for doing so, so i'm not sure how this strawman applies to me?

my only point was that the devs have to make choices, their time and resources are extremely limited, and those choices involved cost/benefit analysis. so numbers do matter.

Let's agree to disagree. I have little chance of changing your mind on some stuff and vice versa.
indeed, i felt the same way several posts back. i was simply trying to explain my viewpoint since it was asked/challenged. i'm not knocking anything btw, i am simply explaining why it isn't likely to be a priority. jmho.
