A lot of what has been said in this thread is great information. I think you have a potentially huge public relations problem though, if the public can come here, as invited, and be scathed for not being informed enough to not make any "mistakes" in either facts or opinions while interacting with the group. Not even Apple or Howcome seem immune from this.

Now I think the suggestion of better documentation, as I made before, needs to be augmented by much better control over the group's tone of response and self control in the face of a public that is understandably unconcerned with how long and hard the group worked on this. The public, as any of us in the font industry serving e.g. the windows market knows, is much more concerned with what does not work, than counting the blessings of what does work.
