No... you won't be getting a response. As we've stated here and on our website, feedback must be posted to us using This is the only way we can answer and prioritize feedback (i.e. fixed format submission as opposed to freeform submission). 95% of web-based feedback gets answered in about 1-2 days on average, and it is cross-posted to our bug database as necessary. If you do not get a reply... it's because you did not provide a valid email address, or your email bounced for some other reason (invalid user, account cancelled, exceeded email storage, ISP is gone, etc., we've seen them all). WRT this bug (binary skip) it has been fixed for a while; however, problem of getting it to you is complex. As we've stated before, we plan to integrate the fix into upcoming releases of SDK (no, it won't make it into Beta 1 which ships today, but perhaps Beta 2), IOS, and Command, then eventually the free products. If you require faster response for your larger customers, please contact us to setup a consulting/support contract. We can provide a rapid 24 hour response, depending on the level of cash compensation. -Carl REBOL Chief
