Likewise, I'm just pointing out that *someone* has to do that work.  In the 
absence of Magic PR Fairies and Magic Code Fairies, who is going to do it and 
what does that person have to give up doing to make time to do something 
else?

What should *I* do?  Stop developing?  Quit my job?  Go part time?  Apply for 
a $3000 TPF grant to sustain me for... two weeks... to learn how to do PR and 
fix all of the problems?  Not sleep?  Give up my remaining hobbies?

"Why don't you just improve your PR?" is really not a simple question.  
Likewise "Why don't you just make milestone schedules and stick to them?" 
or "Why don't you just stop designing and start implementing what you have?" 
or "Why don't you just change the name?" or "Why don't you just... whatever."

I want my Magic Code Fairies, darnit!  Pony optional at this point.
