My observation is that any (ok, most) threads on the community
mailinglist tend to evolve into a lot of
1) wishes for things that aren't in the devices today
2) requests / demands that things should be done differently

which is good for future, but not so ood for specific question about
current devices and current software.
Aside from that, groups of peaple are never congruent - in any given
group you will find as many opinions as there are people. :)

Well, it depends on what information you want. If you skip
device-owners, you miss a lot of specific information about the
devices and software, and the testing that owners do.
I find that useful enough that I invest the little time extra to read
that mailinglist as well.
YMMV, of course.
