I have been informed that people have been asking for signs beforehand.
But you can understand how I thought He read my email and never returned the message, being posted on the blog a day after the email was sent.
I'll think next time before I acccuse a developer in any way shape or form in his own forums.
You do realize all of those suggestions could have been previously planned by Notch this entire time and this whole thing is just one big coincidence, right? You can always catch Notch on IRC if you want to ask him about it.

Hey, Notch likes to do this thing where he listens to player's suggestions (that is, when they're good ideas). It's a sign of a good developer. I'd hardly call that being rude. Plus, these ideas aren't quite unique, and most of them were mentioned by him loooong ago (I know for a fact crafting has been mentioned for a long time). Also, you may have not been the only one to mention them.
You do realize that'd probably take more than one night to program, right?
Besides, you don't give individual members mentions for suggesting something, especially something so obvious. We suggest things to make minecraft better, not because we want to become some kind of celebrity.
