People keep aiming for the wrong issue when they voice their complaints about Kickstarter and that invites comments like this which try to deflect attention from the main issue:
Countless e-panhandling threads on every gaming site, including this site which is presumably about pro-consumer practices (Kickstarter is not one of these), are remarkably irritating. It was cute back when Tim Schaefer was raising millions, but now everybody wants to hop on the gravy train and has been doing so for months at this point.
I don't think they should be banned from the site - instead, I think they would be much easier to endure if they were segregated to their own section of the forum. They're certainly not deals.
