You're just assuming that they had nothing to do, they could well have been busy doing other more important stuff. I don't know what was going on, but then neither do you.

Yes, but VttS seemed to have other 'big' ideas that meant they didn't.

Read my post again properly. I said 'Perhaps there's no other reason than it's simply not a priority right now? '. At least argue with things I've actually said and not things you 'think' I've said.
