Your reports of Telltale's forum death are, as always, greatly exaggerated. ;)
I actually wish some subforums were a little less lively these days...
The adventure-treff news item is absolutely objective. That's why it's so short. I personally carried the news into their forum four days ago, and I certainly wasn't particularly objective.
Indeed, that is the way to go. The reaction of the adventure game community has to be disimpassioned, and there has to be just one voice. There must not be any kind of mob mentality, there must not be any kind of outrage. I don't think the single 'I want to get banned for insults too' kind of posts in the replay forums serve any purpose. Of course, not only the two guys were attacked, but the community as well, and that's where it gets really hairy. But it just means time to shine with reason, dignity and profound sadness over last week's proceedings.
