Microsoft only listens to complaints when enough people complain about the same thing.
With nearly 14 million of us, Code Project members could put in a lot of complaints if we wanted to. The trick would be to organise the plan of ...um, I hesitate to use the word "attack" as this is not what I want to propose.
However, if we could, amongst ourselves arrange to all send in a complaint about a particular bug, feature or lack of one, perhaps we could get some results. I would suggest we limit ourselves to something actually achievable, not, for instance, "Replacing Windows 10 with Windows 7 again", which would be lovely but M$ is unlikely to take any notice unless all 500+ million supposedly happy users requested it.
We have the skills to auto-generate messages on the appropriate complaint message boards or fill out the bug reports. If enough members signed up to petition M$ on something we could generate the request messages for them and send them in. A couple of million requests, all for the same thing might have some impact. A bit like bots but with invested people and good intentions.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
