I understand your point, and I know it is hard to set up the account with the broker, the VPS or the trading machines.
However it is the first important step in algorithmic trading.

Also, you are right that everything should be opened and clear, but unfortunately not all of the brokers do it..
About forum, I do not think there will be ever forum in any of the brokers 🙂
