Oh, you weren't the only one who was mad. If it wasn't you starting it, it would have been someone else, (most likely me!) trust me. Yeah, there will always be people who are incredibly insufferable and won't ever listen to reason, most of us simply develop a psychological shield or filter to their verbal tantrums; I know I have. And I suppose, given what you've said, this is largely what you expected to necessarily ignore. However, all it takes is a little transparency to make reasonable people calm down, even the easily angered ones, so I still believe it could have been impactful. It wouldn't have made the loud and angry any less irritating, but, I think I'd prefer the one or two village idiots hammering their keyboards, versus a community-wide argument where almost everyone and their cat wants to weigh in on the matter. Again, it's too late for that to matter now, but maybe there's PR hindsight to be extracted from this. Even as an adamant analog mode user, I also find it surprising that a non-negligible amount of people used analog mode. Most people I played the game with seemed contented with playing the game on the keyboard, especially in competitive game modes. I thought that was the norm before all of these people crawled out of the woodwork on the SRB2 forums just to post about analog mode's "removal".
