I find it ironic that no matter the side of the debate, one thing you can be guaranteed on is that at least someone will be there to supply your need for confirmation bias, no matter how contrarian you are or how hypocritical your words to your actions become. I feel as we need to nip this in the bud.
And I've argued many times with my brother that there is a very large difference between reasoning and rationalizing. As stated before, simply expressing one's like for the game gets undermined when the majority of one's post is done through negative criticism. Additionally, stating you wish to participate in the growth and improvement of a game similarly gets undermined when said negativity prevents a friendly or civil engagement with said games community. Particularly the community which is not only dedicated, but is enjoying mechanics you may be putting into question, and therefore jeopardizing their enjoyment directly.
However it is in human nature to resist change as we are creatures of comfort, and we must recognize this instinct in us when faced with dissenting opinion. Our reactions should not, in fact become one of immediate attack or deface, but instead to try to ascertain the true intent behind the statement, given that it is provided civily. In instances which the opinion is smothered in offensiveness, the demeanor, not the ideal, should be discouraged and frowed upon. And once addressed the ideal then must be properly weighed in upon, as it is feedback and should be respected as such, even if the response is a staunch disagreement.
So, as a point of advice, do not rationalize your demeanor or rationalize your viewpoint. Reason with those opposed and trying to meet an agreeable compromise. Insisting your right in spite of the consequence is what results in poor reception of your posts, and carrying that around like a badge of honor is a dangerous demeanor to have if you're actually wanting to participate in the community rather than be ostracized by it.
Let me be plain. In no way, is any individual here 'better' than another either by default or through arguments. That includes claims of being higher minded, more intelligent, more logical, etc. Trying to insinuate as such is a thinly veiled insult to everyone of the opposing opinion and the tolerance for that within the community has been wearing thin, if I'm reading the trends correctly.
In my individual opinion it is not wise to continue, nor encourage, such negative behaviors. Believe it or not, some people stop playing games based on forum communities that surround them. The official and Beta Forums are already notorious for the polarized arguments and generally unhealthy environments. In such circumstances it is fan communities such as ZAM that become the bastions of civility and community that prospective players rely upon to create a friendly environment to interact with one another in outside Guilds and the Game itself - and everyone here is responsible for maintaining that.
