Nowhere in the forum rules does it say that you have to be a D:OS fan or a Larian sycophant to be on this forum. In fact, to my way of seeing things, it is exactly people like me that Larian should be listening to and trying to engage in a conversation if they are sincere in wanting to become better at what they do. So until a mod tells me I can't criticize the D:OS games in this forum, I will continue to do so.
Criticise all you want. There aren't many rules beyond stuff that's actually illegal, though I may intervene if it gets personal or excessively disruptive. Beyond that, it's up to forum members as to whether or not they think a particular approach is going to win people over.
The cultural libertarian approach to moderating, I like it.
