    I think, with all the negativity floating around, (yes, much of it from me), it's worth pointing out that absolutely none of my ire is directed at the Devs.

    You guys and gals are doing an awesome job. Thank you. It must be awfully disheartening to know that this kind of row is going on around you, and especially at this time of year when you're all working flat out, I'm sure, in terrible heat, and you don't need this. I'm sorry if any of you have taken personal offence at my words. Your passion shines through and I want you to know I appreciate it.

    Shout out to the community teams too. I know what it's like to be the one stuck giving the sh*tty news out to the masses. I know you're not to blame, you've been told to stick your heads above the trench walls and make excuses for, apologise for, and take the shrapnel for, the failings of others. What a week for it as well.

    I speak for no-one else, obviously, but from me, thank you and sorry.

    I agree. The devs deserve so much credit for their hard work. There is no doubt that they care about what they do.

    The actual programmers, art guys, route guys, etc aren't the problem.

    Devs are doing a pretty good job, the community team is awesome as well and mostly stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    It's time for bean counters to shine though :D

    Those probably go hand in hand :D Them doing one should mean doing the other as well.
