Ugly rumors are going to start no matter what, folks- well, unless you're going solid strong on things, that is (Well, I think we've hashed over and over part of the WHY that's not the case- and Michael Simms points it out too... I won't bore everyone with THAT particular rant again.. ). More to the point, the rumors are coming from the same class of crowd that bitch about what LGP has managed to acquire and won't pay the prices he's having to charge for it just to mostly break even or lose less money. If you're not going to buy, spare everyone.
And if the rumors are less than just that...well...what of it?
You've got my current endeavors outside LGP going on. You've got the Humble Bundle crowd doing what they're doing. You've got other Indies stepping up to the plate as time progresses. You might have Valve hanging in the wings...
