Ive always enjoyed the Trek community at large. they tend to be older men and have a older laid back and have a seasoned wisdom about them. I remember about a year before launch even we had a great community.

Ive made some real good friends though this game and hope to enjoy it for many years to come.
And this is EXACTLY why she said what she said about whiners. Here she writes a column about the positive experiences she's had in the game and people decide to bring up a comment she made a month ago on her personal account no less.

Was she ranting when she said it? Absolutely!

Was she wrong for saying it? No.

Is there a difference between her comment and the ones on the forums? Absolutely

Why? Because she made a post on her PERSONAL twitter, not a thread in the public forums. She didn't come on here and start a thread "bashing" people. She made a personal comment for HER followers to read and linked her forum post, which BTW had no bashing.

The simple fact that in spite of the negativity she's witnessed she still finds bright spots in the game's community says a lot about us overall.
