I find it interesting how people take suggested workarounds for solving a problem as me loading on them additional responsibility. They wanted a solution in the form of a code fix from a vendor who no longer provides code fixes to this version (and takes up to a year to provide them in the current version and is hated when implemented).
I provided a manageable solution they could effect today without waiting to see if or when the feature suggestion might be implemented.
So now I am “asking them to do more work”? Nice.
Next post: the workaround.
