The only arrogance I see is you making a demand for explanation or accountability. The only smugness I see is you believing in the infalibility of your percieved point of view on this matter. The stubborness to which you hold to this position when confronted with the idea that you will not recieve what it is that you believe is owed you in the way of explanation for percieved errors is rather funny at this point. You won't get the people whom released the data/information/knowledge to say what you want, and that is not a RUMOR but a plain and simple FACT.
This smug, elitist crap is why I'm done with this board.
I ask fair questions and I get slammed for daring to question your supposedly infallible "insiders" and suggesting that these gods among men have ever repeated information from one of their sources that ended up being wrong.
The idea that they owe no one any explanation or even a response when this inevitably happens -- and it can easily happen through no fault of their own --- that way of thinking opens the door for a hundred more Tom Corless clones.
I just cannot stand this fandom anymore.
