That's not the point. Suppose you get the devs to program the UI so that the controls' gradation is fine enough for your tastes, or whatever. Someone else (RickEld?) might come along and start complaining that now there aren't big enough jumps among the possible settings.

The point is that you are not the only user, and the devs can't please everyone. Even a happy medium leaves a few people unhappy. "Kicking" someone over a matter of taste is probably counterproductive.

I say this not to curry favor with the devs, but as someone who's worked in the software industry since the 1990s, and has worked on a variety of other creative projects. It's often the case that when you tweak one aspect of a design to please one customer, you alienate another. No one likes everything.
