If you actually read what I have said, I like the game and simply say that it is a missed opportunity if that is all there is to it.
I develop software myself and have used/participate in several user group/feedback groups during the lifecycle. Only hearing people blow smoke up your backside does nothing to advance the quality of the game.
I've (since) read other posts on the board that have said similar things to what I have posted. The developers can either take my comments as an indictment (as you obviously have) or see it as a request for improvement for a game that users (including me) have a passion for...
However, I appreciate your comments - but it is 'homer' comments like those you have posted that remind me of the old "America Love It or Leave It" slogans or the "Go Back to Africa" posters of my youth. I'm sure that is not what you meant, but if you are so passionate about this game - you might consider that it is not perfect and the users of the game have some valid thoughts on improvement.
PS - If you will allow me, I would like to use your comments as an example in my classes. User interaction in forums will not be covered until April, but I like what you have said. I will re-post to you what my students say (agree/disagree)
