Good god, I suddenly have a hard time believing I actually expected people to act like adult human beings on the internet. I appreciate criticism and understand that people have a rightful interest in making sure the project is being well-handled and that people have an important need to voice their concerns or disappointments, but this has just gotten totally ridiculous. Anonymous blog commenting is now disabled, I'm no longer going to tolerate anonymous trolls harassing legitimate fans, patrons, and people who have well-meaning, well-thought-out criticism; show some damn respect to each other.
This goes for people lashing back against criticism, too: I appreciate that you feel strongly about the project and want to support us, but attacking well-meaning critics who make thoughtful posts does nothing to help anyone.
Hopefully having to post under a registered account will make people a little more likely to express themselves intelligently; if problems continue, I'm just going to disable commenting entirely until I can get our own dedicated forum set up.
As a side-note, I'm streaming a little earlier today, starting at 11:00 AM CST.
