I never said I do.

Because you didn't ask for it. Asking goes like this:

  "Hey guys, can anyone please tell me whether someone is working
   on network filesystem support for Thunar or at least planning to
   implement a feature like this?"

What you did is:

  "I want to use thunar, but i need it to have features to browse the
   lan, just because of that i need to have nautilus.
   Also i  was expecting to get an url with the plans for thunar and
   seeing there the lan support, not a joke."

Now tell me where you're "asking" for something and how one can not
interpret these words as "demanding". 

It occurs to me that it might be a good idea for you to read documents
like http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html or our
mailinglist FAQ which is sent to this list every few weeks.

Have a good night/day,
