Sorry for not having included that historical tidbit, of which I was well aware. Mike Hamilton is a regular poster on another mailing list I subscribe to and has been grilled mercilessly about both Flare and his departure from eHelp. Mike seems like a really great guy and genuinely interested in producing the best possible product.

The folks over at RoboHelp did their best (probably unintentionally) to
alienate large numbers of HAT users. As a result many in the community
turned against RoboHelp and embraced the new kid (Flare). I suspect that a
number of Flare users who've had problems have sucked it up because it
wasn't RoboHelp. So I'm inclined to think that there are a number of folks
whose ox has been gored and they're lashing out at the original poster
because of it.

Which is pretty interesting, as Mad Cap was formed by people who were once
the core of RoboHelp.
