Quoted from Who-Dey:
Overblown would be an understatement
It's overblown until YOU draw the bad card. At least Stern came through with PF replacements, etc...
Imagine opening the box of your $8000 MMr and finding it has faded inserts... and knowing you're fully stuck with it.
But to someone else...even THAT would be "overblown".
It's just human nature - of course people tend to talk about it endlessly because they don't want to get stuck with a headache on an unnecessary toy.
