You're assuming that developers don't go at all. I'd be strongly
inclined to believe that many developers have gone by the forums, at
least briefly, and found reasons not to stay.

But then, with an attitude that "the forums are perfect and anyone who
says otherwise is out to get us", how will anyone ever find out?

Instead of immediately assuming that I am out to get everyone, you
could have asked for clarification on points where you're unclear. Take
a look at the "QA Roles v2" thread on -dev for how things *should* work
-- when someone is unsure or doesn't see a point, they ask for an
explanation. That way any questions get answered quickly, without huge
amounts of space being wasted on things that everyone already knows.

The way threads degenerate is when people start leaping to conclusions
and making wild accusations based upon small amounts of material that
they are misinterpreting. Or, occasionally, when someone starts posting
eight page explanations of things everyone already knows...
