There is no call to be condescending and patronizing.
If you have been here for a couple of years, of course you are going to see repetitive questions, discussions, and comments. Complaints as well. You seem to be lumping others questions and comments into the complaint department, but that's your perogative and doesn't take away from their validity. However, if you have seen them "50 times over", rather than take an aggressive , attacking approach, how about not saying anything? Contributing to a negative culture only hurts the community and, ultimately, the success of GW2 as people will be less inclined to be part of, and subjected to, hostility.
I personally haven't been here that long. I've been here since the last Beta weekend, and I have personally seen many of these complaints many times over myself.
And you can't say it's simply my perogative what is a question and what is a complain when many of the threads in question are directly POSED as a complaint with no sort of question about the system at hand involved.
-MOST- of the people who get "attacked" aren't asking about the current system. They are saying how the current system should change to reflect a system they like more. You can call this a "suggestion," but most of these suggestions are more complaint than suggestion, or a suggestion that goes against what appears to be a fundamental game idea.
I have helpfully answered many actual questions. I LOVE being helpful. I provide anyone with any information they ask for.
I have also seriously berated many posters, and their ideas, as they appear to be ideas that go against the feel of the game much of the community and Anet are trying to provide, yet despite MANY people calmly trying to show them the other side of the argument, including myself, they refuse to listen and continue to parrot their opinion, whether or not it is well received.
As you can see, the majority of posters here do NOT agree with this topic. Once 10 people voice the same opinion, the next 10 are going to be frustrated they actually have to say the same thing, since it has already been said.
EDIT: And saying nothing results in a topic that appears heavily one-sided when it isn't, which could possibly result in changes being made that a majority of the community doesn't agree with.
You have to understand that this hostility is coming from people who have seen games like WoW consistently go down-hill over time, people who don't want the same to happen to GW2.
