Open Source & Free Software Failure

People like to say that many eyes make all bugs shallow. That's not true. It flies in the face of conventional wisdom: "Too many cooks spoil the broth.". The idea is that each set of eyes will bring a person who has different standards. Some have standards of excellence. Some have standards of innovation. Some are just bureaucrats.

I personally find it very insulting when I make a suggestion or report a bug, and nobody responds via messages, or by fix the bug.
