I'm not so sure I even agree with the 'community' idea anymore. It seems there are a huge number of takers, and very few actual givers. There are projects, some well known projects, that receive very little support from the 'community' even in non-technical areas yet the project members are immediately attacked for flaws/limitations. Seems the majority of the 'community' just want something for nothing.
