Unfortunately, whining is often precisely how things get done. Developers need to know the extent to which certain things are a pain point in order to prioritize updates for users, who are paying them.
Many people who are desperate enough to search the web and find these forums to try to solve their problems may not be technically savvy to "up" requests and do it the "proper" way. They just want to express their concerns.
Sadly, there is little response. An explanation of why this is not implemented would be much appreciated or a "we're working on it, next update..." or some sort of response.
