Nothing wrong with a bit of positivism.
I believe the word you are looking for is "positivity." Positivism is an unrelated field of philosophy whose name is derived from another definition for "positive:" certainty. Take a moment to review the included link and you'll see what I mean. U USED THW WORNG WORD ON TEH INETERENET BOY U SUR LOKO SILLY NOW
Edit: You are, however, correct. There is nothing wrong with a bit of positivism.
I am sorry, but I believe you missed the intention my original post. I was positing that the potential influx of white knights, being ardently convinced (on new grounds) that their path is the correct one, resemble, to me, the philosophical system founded by Auguste Comte. I shall elaborate. This "new wave" of white knights (we'll henceforth call them neo-knights) will be concerned with positive facts and phenomena (i.e., the steady improvement of the game), and will be excluding speculation upon ultimate causes or origins (that is to say, they will decide that they must move beyond the first year of release and cite it as a non-issue). In short, when I initially claimed that there was nothing wrong with a little positivism, I actually did not mean positivity.
...that, or my inferior FireFox spell-check add-on didn't recognize "positivity" and prompted me to change it to "positivism." I'll let you decide which. :P Edited, Aug 17th 2011 4:46pm by KaneKitty
