Just something I've become aware of that you might want to consider.
I myself am a developer and, like most people work really hard each day trying to please my customers. The work I do is thankless, as I am so far removed from the end result.
Developers get the brunt of "this is not good enough", etc; but there comes a time when personal insults and tawdry comments actually start to push people away. Just think how you'd feel when you have worked really hard at something. Imagine how you would feel if an entire community tore that effort and hard work to pieces?
I know that there are many things that need to be fixed etc, but personally I am at a juncture myself, where "Guys, ok. I think that Cryptic get that you are unhappy."
It's stupid I know, but in my work, my attitude is generally this - either I am part of the solution, or part of the problem.
No-one in their right mind can remain objective, or open-minded in the face of the sort of abuse I see on the PvP forums of late.
As a PvPer, I am rather sad. Sad, that for whatever reasons, IMHO we collectively chose to be part of the problem.
Do with this as you may, its really just my sincere opinion on the matter.
We are dealing with fellow, human beings - not machines. They take this abuse home with them everyday.
