Hey, I can't say that I feel your pain. I can't seem to get my projects on the front page even though some negative feedback would be welcomed and even helpful.

I think done amount of negativity is something that just happens on all tech forums. Programmers are an opinionated lot.

negativity is why you have awesome projects like linux, ffmpeg etc. things don't thrive because you tell them how great they are. they strive because a) someone tells them what the crap is. and b) the person is strong enough to tell himself, ok you'll see i'll build something so awesome even you will have to accept it.
