Poo on Slashdot

DISCLAIMER: Opinions expressed here are my own, and not those of Wizards of the Coast, blah blah blah.

I'm just cranky because I read a Q&A with Andy Collins, Chris Perkins, Scott Rouse, and Sara Girard on Slashdot, which was fine, but then started wading into the comments and got overwhelmed by obnoxious. We try to explain why we think 4e is a better game than any previous edition, and people willfully misread that as "We want you to spend more money."

Damn it, I've been working insanely hard for almost three years now to make the best game I know how to make, the D&D I really want to play, and it pisses me off to watch people dismiss it as a half-assed marketing ploy.

There, I said it. Maybe I shouldn't be saying it publicly, but I'm on vacation and my boss can't yell at me until . . . well, until I go play D&D at his house on Thursday.
