That you read a reply within the context of this thread, without understanding the fundamentals thereof, and then in turn argued that I was unaware of the context of the article I posted within, neverminding within the very context of this forum alone, escapes me as to how you have not understood the basic dynamics of participation, despite inferring that you have knowledge pertaining to content that of which has a lifespan of nearly 5 years within a forum, is more than revealing as to how you have also, in that same passage of time, not been able to come to the awareness that the Developers are not interested in you.
I do not find you interesting. You are upset that things did not go your way with regard to a video game. You have disrespected the developers, myself, and other members; I have no respect for you. That you thought throwing a fit of demands at men, to be an effective form of communication for resolving your apparent crisis over the screenshots and the release date of a computer game, is also another reason why I have no respect for you.
Again, thank you to the developers for my three favorite games; their loyalty to a relatively small but dedicated group of fans is honorable. Thank you to the members of this forum that contribute, with a genuine intent for a positive outcome, their most creative and bright ideas; they stimulate thought and discussion, and are the reason why I joined this forum. Thank you to all the members that work hard to produce mods for the community; your work ethic and creativity speaks positive volumes about your character.
And contrary to his accusations, the last thing that I want to do is create a hostile environment within this forum. I did not see how standing up to defend the team, responsible for the development of the next game of a series that we all share a common interest, would be taken as a negative. To the member who responded with hostility toward me: I am sorry, I can not agree with you; I would never berate the development team with ugly and ignorant comments. If simply not because it is beneath me, than otherwise, based upon my understanding that such behavior would mean risking, if even a chance, a negative effect on the integrity of the developers, at the expense of the game's development. Attacks to character, credibility, motivation, work ethic, and the competence of the development team, comes at the expense of every fan on this forum. And far from constructive, righteous, or vigilant, is nothing less than the work of a narrow-minded and short-sighted bully who possesses both limited communication skills as well as a rudimentary ability to communicate rotten, sad, malnourished, and underdeveloped ideas and emotions, into written text, demonstrated by what he has judged important and worth sharing with the world over the internet. That he has an internet connection, is the only accomplishment I have seen which, makes him stand out from the rest of us ;)
The fact that the developers even interact on this forum, in any capacity, after the complete horseshit that has been said about them, is a credit to their dedication to the fans. A member who thinks that attacking the developers, and berating them, will help to motivate and produce an improved result is simply and sadly ignorant. But a member who does so because it did not get what it wanted is a self-centered and immature.
