It's always been a shit show if you could get through the unabashed fanboys that dominated the thread and really skewed this whole thing. So much history of belittling and attacking most any member who didn't tow the total sunshine rainbow line, just like Predator.
Sad to see this happen, but I'm not surprised. It looked like a 50/50 chance for years now, so either way I guess I wasn't going to be surprised at what transpired.
I find it bizarre that a number people hitch their cart so vociferously to something that's far far removed from them, other than wanting a theme. Some people associated with the pin also took it upon themselves to speak on behalf of the company on the forum again and again, which was obviously fraught with much peril. Plenty of reputations flushed down the toilet. Others were already there and have solidified their status.
Condolences to all.
