I kind of agree with you. I thought about joining their fleet, but I changed my mind. I doubt that I would be allowed to openly criticize the game or Cryptic as a member of their fleet. They're doing everything that they can to stay on the good side of Cryptic, because that gives them increased access to interviews for the podcast, like the long one they did with Gozer. But, the downside is that it almost comes off as a Cryptic PR show.
I understand that they're enthusiastic guys, but it's getting to be pretty ridiculous. I'll continue to watch, but I'm still looking for a good fleet that won't police it's members for how they "represent" themselves on these forums.
edt: Not that I'm saying the Jupiter fleet has done this policing, to my knowledge, but the implications are there.
