There is nothing wrong with asking for release dates, it just shows that people are anticipating the product. It's just not good when people start to nag about it.

Of course people will be anticipating for a product however asking for release dates doesn't exactly help the developer. This can make a developer rush their product which would then affect the quality. Another reason is they may not be able to keep up with that release date which would then get people angry or upset. Each developer should be allowed some privacy and will only share a release date if they are ready to.

While this is true, there is not much harm in asking. It is just suspicion. Everyone has it.

The author will give an release date when they are ready. They can't give an update if they only started working on a project, because things could happened between now and his expected release date. In addition, this doesn't factor in scripting or animation which is the hardest part of making the bus and depending on the bus it could take longer than planned. Also you don't want to promise dates which they may not be able to keep.

Again true, but that is the authors decision. It is no good everyone jumping on the one person who only asked for a date. We shouldn't complain, we should just leave it for the author to say "I don't want to give out a release date". If he gives a release date and doesn't bring the product out by that date and people give him trouble for it, while they shouldn't be giving him trouble, he was the one who decided or didn't decide to give out a date.
