I think that if it's a big enough deal to people, and that the problem has been continuous, then they should literally change providers; a discussion that the league I commish is having currently (and that we could consider for the Cafeholic Leagues next year too). Responsible or not, there are alternatives (now granted, those who decide to play on Y! should expect to have a good product, but I feel they generally do -- I'm as serious a fantasy baseball player as exists, and I've never gotten all in a tizzy about anything -- my biggest gripes are their points league support and division format that this season was essentially useless).
And, back to your original point, conversation is great regarding bugs, suggestions, etc. -- and the Cafe is typically very gracious and constructive, but unfortunately we've got the children who run around shouting words like 'always', 'garbage', 'crap', so on and so forth regarding issues that pop up minimally, and a product that, if truly was those things, wouldn't have so many people playing it when there are other providers that are just as Free. And, while there's a great many of us who appreciate the support we get here from Y! via the Genie, at no cost, something that no other provider currently offers in the slightest -- it really grinds my gears to see people take shots at him, when he is nothing outside of incredibly informative and helpful to us here.
So, that's where I'm coming from, I guess.
