Honestly, maybe I'll start hanging out there then, since I've all but given up on guru due to so much negativity over a game that I am absolutely loving, as are my entire guild.
The internet at large are not worthy of GW2's idealistic and highly reasonable and smart approach to development. The biggest mistake made is that GW2 expected its vocal "fan base" to be civil on the internet. The more draconian they get on their forums, the closer I'll get to having a new news and discussion home.
This isn't a "head in the sand" mentality talking, I acknowledge that GW2 has its flaws, but the negativity that gets spewed at this well intended game for sane, reasonable, mature players that are given all the tools to make their own fun but instead expect it all to be mind numbing and unidirectional like other games is appalling.
The sooner the game's community slims down to those appreciative and worthy of what we have in GW2, the better.
It's not for everyone. Heck, it's not for most of the people that will read this.
I totally agree with you but we live in the ungreatful, impolite, irrespectful, entitlement generation add to that the world of whiner's club (WoW for short
) and then people wonder why threads and posts get moved and closed.

Quite frankly, censorship of the kind that is going on on that forum is absolutely despicable and when I see that stuff I am ashamed to support them with my money. [/quote]
More dispicable than the insults trown at them after 5 years working on a game with a genuine intent on pleasing fan, please give me a break. If this kind of total lack of respect and insults were directed at me I would have the same kind of censorship. A kind word and a constructive comment about a bug goes a long way towards keeping a thread open. I report bugs every day online without insults it's that easy.

A good way for them to not get fixed is to not discuss them. [/quote]
You can discuss them all you want by simply adding a constructive and kind word here and there instead of pouring this kind of example; ( You fuc''n as...s wipe .... ........)
