i understand being passionate about improving a game made by a developer you've grown to respect, but this thread's tone more frames these issues as a personal attack against a customer rather than design choices you don't appreciate. moreover, it reflects poorly on the thread creator when any and all criticism of his behaviour is met with hostile responses and accusations of bland fanboyism, and doesn't promote any kind of discussion

there are a lot of threads that i've read on this forum already which address all of these issues (and more) in ways that at the very least promote discussion from people who expect different things of a game like this. a thread like this in which everyone who disagrees or points out the latent hostility doesn't do this

Spot on.
