	I don't know if I agree with this.  When it comes to issues like this, I tend 
to have an attitude of "it's your company, guys, I'm just a customer.  Here's 
my feedback".  As you well know, I have no problem whatsoever voicing 
concerns about things I perceive to be problematic ;), and I daresay we all 
here tend to agree with 90-95% of all the concerns the other experienced 
users such as yourself tend to post in the forums.  To me the chorus of 
voices over issues is clear to SESI - but in the end it's their choice to 
make strategic decisions about *this* issue being more important than *that*.

	My point is, there's an inference that SESI is picking priorities based on 
ignorance, and I disagree.  Getting a bunch of "me too's" on a new site - 
sorry I just don't think that's important.  Well, to clarify, it's no more 
important IMHO than what we already have i.e. the mailing list, the forums 
and support.  That's not to suggest that SESI shouldn't consider alternate 
ways to garner feedback, I just don't see the value of this.  It would take 
significant resources to maintain and I'm having difficulty in seeing the 
advantage.  How would you weight the value of this list, in comparison to all 
the other demands that SESI gets from educators, large FX shops, etc.?
