I posted what I thought was a fairly informed and honest review of SotA on Steam. I received an absurd backlash of downvoting and in some cases violent flaming by people who seem to no longer be members of the SotA community. I haven't encountered anything like that personally - so far, everybody has been welcoming, positive, and forthright with me - but it seems there are some people who have taken their damaged pride to a frightening level! I'm not really interested in the events or "scandals" this guy is talking about (99% of the time when someone complains about "moderator overreach" they are mad that they did a dumb and got banned.) Rather, I wanted to post a few of his comments because this feels like a bizarre, violent outlier more than a member of a developed community - I wanted to see if other people have trouble with this sort of thing, and maybe score a few laughs at his Napoleonic fury. Anyway, "[removed by Berek]" posted this in response to my review on Steam: The "slander" he refers to is a suggestion I made that if you are looking for a AAA-polished, complete game, that both Battle.Net and FFXIV offer well-developed, excellent games with huge playerbases. I should mention here that I am an active member of both of these communities and I enjoy them very much, and my suggestion reflects that. That he took personal offense to this indicates to me he is perhaps a part of the very negative element I haven't seen in this community. Why he capitalized "Insider Trading" but not "Kickstarter" is well beyond me. His misuse of the semicolon is just insulting. He then went on to throw a few personal jabs in there: I understand not everybody got what they imagined from this early access game, but this really feels like a case of a bruised ego not being personally catered to. Leave the pixies out of this, pal. To the truly disenfranchised, I offer my humble condolences. To guys like this, I offer a fig's-end and directions to the "uninstall" button. Who's with me? Let's pledge to steer clear of this kind of poison together, and keep to the path of the Virtues.
