But I generally don't being the subject up in the first place and I don't constantly go on about it (admittedly I have talked about it a lot recently).

I wouldn't put you in the same category as Beamer at all. Without you bringing it up, I wouldn't have pegged you as a "corporate defender" (using that tongue-in-cheek) at all.

That's a fair point about evil versus asshole, but some people take it further when they talk about being forced to buy some new version or some DLC - no one is forced, not even taking that somewhat figuratively. That's the sort of reality distortion I don't like.

Oh, certainly, I would never deny that there's a large amount of hyperbole on these forums.

Are you putting me and Beamer in the "believe [publishers] are always right" group? I'm certainly not and I'm pretty sure Beamer isn't either.

You, no. Beamer conditionally yes. And by that I mean that I don't think that's what he really thinks, but that's how his posts will come across. He's sort of like "Captain Publisher" - if there's a publisher in distress that needs help, he's on the scene to defend them. That's why you end up with people like Eirikrautha calling him out, simply because he does it so frequently you can identify one of his posts without needing to read the name.
