continuing this “discussion” which went down the drain, i would kindly like to speak up once more, against some very unpractical concerns doubts and misunderstandings left out on the table.
to resume and underline the actual essence:
i think its important that you dont confront users who are willing to help you out with bugreports and suggestions with a ridiculous option of returning their licence. you can turn it around as you want, that is pure cynicism which creates unnecessary negativity.
i have not the slightest idea why one even would suggest that to a very active user, who obviously has no ill intention but rather concerns about the product, which is good for the product and good for you to. it makes absolutely no sense trying to piss somebody off who is willing to share time and efforts for this product and no it does not make it easier solving it, it just makes it worse.
now i spoke up sternly against @dan as he represented McNeel who suggested me to contact sales after an absolute civil talk and got an absolute natural and civil response which is no more personal than getting suggested to contact sales, obviously giving back the Rhino licence. so whatever you may think keep it and let it simmer for everybody their own.
i appreciate Rhino for about 10 years including all the ups and downs, but i am not very happy with how people are being treated i dont need any supporters on that, thats my own personal view, and yes if you think one opinion has no value then how much value has 10 times 0? you can wind yourself into believing whatever you want. lock that thread again or contribute in a civil, fair and thoughtful manner, but most of all stop killing each other over nothing.
oh… and if you read the hidden content in the linked topic regarding Siberia, i just noticed that ironically hell went loose there and fire is actually diminishing a huge and important amount of trees in the forests.
