It depends on how a company views its customers and their opinions as to whether or not they actually listen. Some customers just don't get it, after all. But at the very least developers should be aware of what their customers are saying.

It's not hard to figure out how Bethesda sees it. Look at the answer to the first question and how Todd Howard described Matt Grandstaff's function to him as community manager. Bullet Shield. That says it all.

These were great questions that were put to the wrong person (the worst, IMO). The right person would work in product management or development. Honestly, I would value the candid opinions of Bethesda's receptionist more than the ones expressed by its Bullet Shield.
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on. But it don't snow here. It stays pretty green. I'm going to make a lot of money, then I'm going to quit this crazy scene. -- [Joni Mitchell]
