In all honesty I tend to stay out of posting in the forums here because they are so toxic. It's almost assured that one will get flamed by someone over ideas ranging from the petty to large scale issues. Heck, I've been around since the closed beta tests, to early access and launch and this has remained a consistent issue with these forums. Toxicity.

Moreover, I'd just rather play the game than come in some forum and rant and rave about how A.) Either I like the game or B.) Dump a laundry list of issues in a non-constructive fashion. When I get bored I unsub. When I have tech issues I go to support, if it doesn't get resolved I unsub and leave comments in the unsub box.

I find it disgusting tbh. I think it's reprehensible that Bioware allows a few trolls, defenders or not, to drive off so many of their customers.
Can't wait for the next reset. Was awesome for the two weeks after the last one in October ... until banned accounts resurfaced under new names. BW should consider making forum resets a monthly housecleaning exercise imho.

I have not really seen anyone with genuine constructive criticism 'bullied'.

But I'll be the first to admit, when someone comes along and posts nothing but "this game sucks and you biodrones are fail for liking it you must be employed by bioeawarefail", I'll be one of the first in line to point out their hypocrisy.

I wonder if the "criticism defenders" in this thread actually read the OP? He stated specifically what type of posts that are bothering him, yet the "criticism defenders" are talking about how the "biodrones' are in full force in this thread because they can't stand any negativity about SWTOR. But that isn't the issue. OP is talking about the newly created, dummy accounts, that are obviously trolling. But if that is unacceptable, then I can only assume that the "criticism defenders" of this thread, are in fact trolls. I mean, the first openly hostile comments in this thread are about "biodrones" so who is being aggressive and hostile towards others' opinions? OP who asked a question without aggression? Or the ones who answered him without calling anyone out? Or the people who called the people answering the question "biodrones"? It's the third option, fyi.

Right? Right.
