I never said you were bad and evil
I'm just saying that the way you approached that whole discussion might've resulted in a bunch of guys getting really disappointed with you. And since all these guys were telling you a thing I agree with, and on rather solid grounds (IMO), and since it's a rather obvious thing that will keep cropping up (like it just did), I'd say they had a reason to be disappointed.
Now if you gave the exact same reasons why it's out of the question to Kingdom of One here that you gave us, I don't think he'd think you're evil or bad. But I don't see him being able to see you as reasonable as far as that issue is concerned.
And as for ignoring/invalidating people who don't post - there is no way anyone can prove that scumming for something to locker and just pressing a buton that shuts the game off, staring at a blank wall with "scumming" on it for a set period of time until the game reloads and the item is lockered, isn't the same thing. It's not a matter of liking or not liking it, it's a fact. So what anyone who doesn't understand this thinks doesn't matter because he isn't the one being forced to do something he sees no point in. Anyone who does understand is is forced to do something he doesn't have any reason to want to do if it can be avoided. Simple thruth.
EDIT: What got people disappointed (and possibly insulted) even before I outright called you fools is not you guys (or anyone) having an opinion on the matter, but you guys insisting that something that's plain as day and factual isn't so. The fact that we felt like we had to put so much effort into explaining the whole thing even before you replied was a huge concession on our part, because it is equal to having to write a really tactful science paper about the sky being blue. Not WHY, but just that it IS. And then you guys just wouldn't back down with insisting that it in fact isn't. It is, and if you believe enough people don't notice the sky is there at all - it's fine, it's your game, you are the devs. Anyone who ever looks up will notice it.
