Personally, I think that the most interesting thing about this blog is that everyone has pretty much the same emotional response to games but expresses them very differently. A sociology major should write a thesis on this blog. It would be pretty darn interesting.
IMO, the most interesting of all discussions is that the AD is good/bad. Where else other than here would anyone ever talk about an AD? It just goes to show you the depth of our knowledge about the program - from the ground up - thanks to all of the informed and intelligent contributors on the blog, including someone like the OP who is brave enough to voice his opinion.
That said, I'm not a huge fan of these kinds of threads. I'd rather that these kinds of things be addressed in a personal email to the subject involved but this one has invoked some interesting discussion (so far).
