Thanks Rikki,
   I agree.

The exchange in issue 3 was along the lines of:

E - There is a bug: small piece of code.
J - I can't reproduce, give more details please.
E - Just do some more work and guess what I have been doing to 
run into this.
K - Well that's some vital piece of information, don't you think? 
I guess this could be due to this or that or this or that.
E - Why are you working here? And let me add some more ungrateful 

I closed and locked the issue.

@Ewa-D Please educate yourself on what the D language can and 
cannot do, in a respectful manner. Tone down your expectations of 
development of a free and open source program, and be nice to the 
provider of that software.
