The OP posed a question - A very loaded and biased question, to be sure, but a question all the same. If the question was ONLY meant to be answered in the affirmative, then they should not have posed the thread as a question in the first place. By all means, make a thread that is specifically about focusing on the elements that you like and request when posting it that folks who don't like the things that you like, or don't agree, to leave the thread alone - that's fine, welcomed even. But if you pose a thread asking a question, don't get shirty at other forum members for answering it.

Most of the regular posters here, who are still here after this amount of time, and still providing feedback, are doing so because they genuinely want the game to be good, and are genuinely not satisfied with what they have seen so far, enough so that they want to do *whatever* they can to hopefully improve the things that are dissatisfying, no matter how futile the effort seems. Those who have long since discarded their rose-tinted spectacles can see that there is far more that is sub-par about this game than is good, and generally they're past the point of giving gentle, soft-spoken let-downs when asked about it.

This is hilarious. So, I get called out for "missing context" all the time, and yet, here you are, deliberately ignoring the context, in order to justify "but we have to squeak so we get greased"... What part of "Annoyances/Complaint aside" implies that annoyances and complaints should be what you're posting? Entitlement? Rage? "I want more 5e, but only the stuff I like"? Will it be enough if you manage to drive all the "naysayers" off the forums completely? That's what I was responding to, after all, the OP, driven out of their own thread by the mob. Congratulations?

Hey, wait a minute. Wasn't it you that was trying to call me out for bullying GM4Him, when I was actually agreeing with their post, but didn't just say "yeah"? I think it was, actually. In a thread about any character being able to use another class's abilities, where I instead said "if there isn't a narrative reason for it, it needs to be fixed". So, what's changed that now you find "bullying" acceptable? Whether or not you agree with what's presented? Whether or not you can squeak enough to get some grease?

The sad part of this is that, instead of removing the off-topic posts, and admonishing the offenders, the thread will just get locked. But hey, we can't have anything positive floating around, it might make the squeaky wheels feel marginalized. We can't have that, even if it means marginalizing someone else, right?
