h8 on, losers.
I hope by "some people" you meant dkzzz, not me.

perhaps i wrongly assumed that the OP wanted thoughts on the work that was posted. i assume this because, personally, when letting others know about my work i hope for some constructive feedback.
how does "i can't do this, so man this is awesome!" help? the OP most likely already knows that there isn't one single shoe (or anything for that matter) that will please everyone.
is this just a tacit understanding by most or am i just off the mark completely?
I think I have done the first; and I can only emphasize the second.

If you want to constructively criticize you dont have to be nasty. DKZZZZ's comment was just nasty.
