So... what? Of all the people on Ebon Hawk, of all the people who post to this thread... I get 4 people who actually give feedback, or comment on others' feedback, or engage in conversation of feedback?
An individual's stated opinion rarely corresponds to their actual thoughts, particularly on anonymous forums.
The creation of a fresh, 2.4 medium within which players can display their accomplishments will be met with enthusiasm, and you'll see no lack of interest or responses.
Whether you have the time and motivation to keep on top of a new thread is up to you, but you need not be concerned by potential negativity.
