While I can't speak for FM developers, I actually think "complaining" (I'd rather think of it as providing feedback) is beneficial to the design process. It only becomes a problem (tiresome) when it's the same people saying the same things or when people assume that their individual wants/needs are more important than the wants/needs of the user base as a whole.

Anyone with kids understands that there's a huge difference between complaining, and feedback.

Much of the " feedback " here has been much more attune to whining, complaining, kicking and screaming, yelling until someone does things the way I want them to be done.

For a very long time I was sure (and also posted it here) that the moment classic interface goes away - I go too...
But once the classic interface vanished I said to myself: "Why not give the current interface a try, at least until I find something else (better...)"
Well, it took time but as I've got used to it I realized it's much better than I thought
True, I still miss some features I used with the classic interface, but I can definitely say: "I'm staying!!

Well, that might be your opinion. For me, e.g., it was the reason to sign up with FastMail at all.

Reminds me of an old Nina Simone song... "Who you gonna run to, on that day?"

What if someone stole your computer?

I have high encryption on my machine, and my machine is never unlocked when its unattended. I always log out of my machine, I just never log out of the browser. If someone stole my computer, I wouldn't be worried in the least.

I too have a RunBox account.

I really don't want to leave Fastmail, but I am prepared.

I'll probably keep my POBox account though.

Okay, we get it.. The horse has been thoroughly beaten. It's time to just move on.
