This sentence is the first useful contribution you made in this thread, on your third message. It seems to have started as simply trolling.

It would be really helpful if you would try to provide concrete statements explaining things which are missing, or explanations of use cases perhaps accompanied by explanations of how other systems meet them.

Statements along the lines of "you guys are useless and the Web doesn't work" are a waste of everyone's time.
