Atlassian puts their own bug database online. When you find a problem with Atlassian software you can search for it there. You will likely find that other people have found this problem before you, and opened tickets on it, which Atlassian has since closed, explaining either - yes, it is broken, but fixing it would be hard, so we're not going to OR - no, that's the way it is supposed to work, and we're not going to change it

Agree. There are so many feature requests that would make the tool more useful that they flat out reject because... I guess they don't feel like doing work?

"It’s easy to see how Trello fits into Atlassian’s overall suite of productivity tools, which have increasingly targeted non-developers, too. At its core, Atlassian’s own JIRA project management service already features a Trello-like Kanban board, for example. That’s only a small part of what JIRA does, however, and for many potential users, a board is really all they need to keep track of their projects. JIRA also features a full-blown issue-tracking service, reports, and an on-premise version that enterprises can run on their own servers."

FTFA.

I guess you didn't read it very well?

So, hypothetically... if someone were to shoot and kill you in this private world of yours... who would care/pay for the trial? Your family and their "private police" may argue it's murder, but the person who killed you may argue it was self-defense. Who will force them into court? Your family's private police force? What if theirs is larger? What if they just decide to wipe out your entire family? Who will care/pay for that trial? If no one does, does that not make it murder anymore?

It seems what you're advocating is going back to the 6th century where might makes right and every lord controlled acres of land and dealt with infrastructure. You'll easily be crushed by a larger, more organized, and civilized nation.

You think the US numbers are garbage, but the Chinese numbers aren't? You seriously think the Chinese don't cook their books? How much contribution to the GDP does an empty Chinese city generate exactly? http://therealdeal.com/2016/02...

Besides that, the Chinese monitor everything. There is NO privacy in China. So what exactly is it you're advocating for if you think the Chinese are doing it better? The poor in China still live in shitholes. By moving to capitalism, they didn't all just magically become rich. There are more poor people in China than there are people in the US... threefold! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

You are naïve and... you fail.

Ayn Rand makes the same argument in Atlas Shrugged. Reardon builds a metal industry far better and more efficient than any competitor, so then the "have-nots" come in and demand that it be controlled and shared for their benefit despite having done nothing to develop it or expand upon it.

That's exactly what you're advocating. Governments and people who had no hand in building this great achievement want to come in and take control despite having done nothing to build upon it, while a relatively benevolent entity has controlled it for decades. What gives you that right?
