People freak out about having their game dissed because we have somehow lost a difference in meaning between \"I do not like xyz\" and \"xyz is crap.\" Despite it being \"assumed\" that saying the latter is synonymous with the former, people do not take it this way. In fact, \"I do not like...\" has become a value judgment. If someone doesn\'t like a game, it is not seen as a reflection on them but an insult to the game.

I agree Dan, Tristram that is very accurate. I would add that people, nowdays, blur the line between someone saying,\\\"I don\\\'t like what you like.\\\" and confuse it with,\\\"I don\\\'t like you as a person.\\\"

I think you should interview one of the \"theory\" guys.
