Where I moderator I would lock this tread in a heartbeat.

I was seriously considering buying Sky Tools.
After reading these treads and all this whining. Now not so much. Not because of the review
But because of what seems to be the community that supports this tool.
I’m sure the product is fine but the people not so much.

Atstronomics are doing a wonderful thing here keeping up a forum for us to share our hobby please do not waste their time.. really!

This is the Internet get over it!

There's always one on every forum isn't there? You, sir, are why I gave up on USENET a long time ago.

You really don’t get how destructive you are, do you?
You got a huge user base her on CN, you get free advertising every day by your users here
I would not complain at all if I were you, but rather eat the good with the bad so to speak,
and maybe realise that there still are improvements to be done with your product:
Reading the review, clearly not all newcomers understand all of your cool features.

Ok folks we are going to lock this thread for a while so everyone can take a step back. When (and if) we unlock it we will also consider some judicious editing to allow corrections to the software's abilities to remain, but remove a lot of the unpleasantness.
