I don't think it is a fair statement to make. I'm not saying all the features should have been added, I'm saying Tjerk shouldn't imply that they were, to me that is misleading.
I agree with that, I read his post after I was using mIRC v6.1 for a little while, and was shocked by it. Many of the features (major and minor) that were suggested through the Feature Suggestion forum were ignored, or are an on-going process, and that statement is quite misleading.
I am by no means ditching 6.1 because of this (I slightly like it), I am just agreeing with codemastr about that fact.
