I don’t have to tell you, that the Winter 2016 has blindsided us all, and could not have come at a worse time in regards to the level of emotions rubbed raw by current world events.
The outcry and level of angst over the elements and flavor of this very “Un-Christmassy” update should be predictable, to even the most Non-PC, insensitive, thoughtless programmer/writer lout who thinks that their “humor” is insulated from public opinion by the fact that they write for a game based on a cartoon. But, of course…nothing could be further from the truth.
But to me, the saddest and most disturbing result of this update, has been the public reaction, along with the complete dismantling of any semblance of polite discussion, common sense, or tollerance for other’s opinions. It has gone from “EA Sucks/This Update Sucks” to personal attacks on one another’s beliefs, attacking religions, attacking those who disregard the controversy, and attacking those who are attacking those who are attacking any and all positions.
It is divisive and harmful to a community. We have had to delete more comments in moderation, than any other time in the history of TSTO Blogging.
This. Is. Going. To. Stop. PERIOD.
It’s going to stop here. And it’s going to stop now. Because enough, is enough, is enough. AND…I ACTUALLY HAVE A SOLUTION FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE UPSET ABOUT THIS UPDATE…Really.
But, as far as a free-form, open forum for random, vitriolic bitching? We’re done. You made Mom cry. And, that is unacceptable.
First a little history…a chance to vent…and then a solution.
But. be forewarned, if you don’t read the whole post, and just jump ahead to make a comment, you risk having your comment deleted. So…READ IT ALL.
