I did not complain if people report bugs in docs I wrote. I really 
appreciate usable feedback to improve the docs.

I talked about comments like "the entire page seems wrong". This is no 
feedback. This only means that the author was incapable to produce 
something that doesn't work at all.

I'm frustrated by people not providing useful feedback or with respect. 
The ones who always know everything better and always force me to 
justify everything I wrote, without having ever provided a single page 
of documentation in the Wiki. Or at most just added/updated a few 
sentences occasionally, while I spend 10-15 hours each month to refresh 
docs, write new guides, test procedures, and update instructions before 
we ship a new major version.


PS: In the end it might not matter what Windows version I use to capture 
screenshots on. I use screenshots only in exceptions to show things that 
are difficult when wrapped in text. If I know about any differences on 
other versions, I add a sentence next to the image. However, it makes 
more sense to me to use Win10 for the screenshots than from an outdated 
OS. I also don't use the output of Samba 4.4 commands in the guides, if 
there are newer versions available. If you think we should better 
provide docs that contain eight year old Win7 screenshots, please upload 
new images. Don't complain - just do.
