A word. I am not
a contented customer. Nor am I satisfied. I even mentioned I have been playing other games while I wait to see which way this goes. I actually visit the forums only to see what IS happening and what direction it's taking and frankly I've been dismayed with what I've seen - as many others clearly have to. I think this a watershed and long overdue.
The difference here is I don't make a big deal about a broken game - for whatever reason - and I don't start making baseless (and clearly improper) claims against the *company* in my discontent. It looks bad - for not only existing members - but newer, potential customers. This actually harms "my investment" in TH because the potential to turn customers away with such vehemence and nastiness is a real possibility.
Go and read Steam reviews and tell me whether you'd buy this? If I was smart enough to accept it as a lot of hot air over F2P, I would then arrive here and see disunity, brash rude posts - many from "veterans" as well, and I'd stay 1000 miles away from it. It MIGHT be justified but it's pointless and very harmful, to ALL of us.
Many here have taken exception to people who DO make a big deal about it (which is fine) BUT they have chosen to take it far further than it needs to go which is exactly what this "policy" - and much of the discussion - is about really.
It's a manners
thing, not a content thing as some people are trying to imply. Being dissatisfied is not an excuse for abusive behaviour or - I would take it one step further - trying to imply how a company operates with what I'd say are some pretty wild (read defammatory) accusations.
More importantly, in answering your point specifically, if you put something up that may be contentious, don't expect it ever to remain unchallenged either. This is not the intent here. It is in HOW it's challenged and people just need to accept they cannot possibly be right every time and consider alternate views.
And, I hasten to add, that INCLUDES me. I can get pretty riled some times at what I read and try to inject some "old fashioned" discipline - much to many peoples chagrin I should stop. I will stop.
For my usual analogue. Consider we're all on a sinking ship. Yelling at the bloke who took your money for the trip, and is not even on the boat, or your fellow passengers, is not going to save us. We need to all pick up a bucket.... and bail.
At the moment this place has more Gilligans than Docs.... We need more Docs. They're
So the word "dozens" is the key word here, right?
I'm a betting man that the phrasing could be abused or misinterpreted, yes.
