RP might have zero production cost, but do you know what does?

Servers.
Champions.
SERVERS
Skins
Reworks
Balance changes
Game client
SERVERS!!!!
Back-end platform work
Tribunal
This website, including the forums
Video spotlights for art/champions
Localization across many different languages.
So, BASICALLY EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT THEIR GAME THAT COSTS NO MONEY TO PLAY AND ENJOY.

Your argument is invalid.

Every thread on the list of threads will not be fixed in the way the community wants it to. Most of those threads talk about their business model, and how they want stuff to be easier to get, for less money.

I want gas to cost 5 cents a gallon, but it's never going to happen.
In Venezuela, it costs 4 cents

You're bumping a thread filled to the brim with people explaining in detail how the OP is wrong, so thanks for that.

Nobody seems to understand that there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes. I am confident Riot has read every single one of those large threads and has had a lot of internal discussion on the matters. The community has influence but they aren't the end all be all overlords they think themselves to be. Not everything will be in a positive light, I've personally made updates and changes when I was forum administrator for a small community that didn't make sense (e.g. "if it isn't broken dont fix") to a large number of my members even though the back end benefits were great. Every one of your complaints has to be solved internally before someone can come out and give an update. And when they do if they do, they don't expect you to like the answer. If it makes more business sense then they're more likely to go through with it.

As for the rest of the "fun posts" that you complain about, it's much easier to play with the community than to go back over a post to make sure it doesnt break any NDA's or to make a post on a controversial subject that has ongoing internal discussion, or the Rioter has no say in the matter and thus would keep quiet anyway.

It seems like the original posters and those that agree with them with threads like these don't have the slightest sense of how to run a community or a business.

Everyone gets upset when Riot can't give them all they info they ever want. No one considers that Riot may just not want to say something and get in trouble for it later. They don't want to get our hopes up over things they can't deliver. They don't want to accidentally break NDA's. They don't want to reveal things that are in the works, only to have them delayed by a year. They've done these things in the past, and gotten in huge messes because of it. Just be glad they're making a game that you enjoy, and be glad they interact with the community at all, even if it is mostly on a friendly level instead of a business level.

Let's make a list on what Riot HAS done..

Stealth Rework
Xin Rework
Art changes
The Proving Grounds
The performance upgrade on Summoner's Rift
Tournament Draft Custon Game mode
Co-op vs A.I. improvements
Server Side Runes and Masteries
LeaverBuster
Normal Draft Mode
Color Blind Mode
The New Masteries (from season 1 to 2)

All of this IN ADDITION to New champs, new Items, balancing champions and items. A lot of what is above is from what the League of Legends playerbase has asked for. So please stop your complaining how Riot does not listen.
