All they need to say, is that “it’s for new players” and it’s like they manage to flip a switch in the brains of people like yourself, turning any and all critical thinking off. Congratulations, you’re easy to manipulate.
“Think of the children” is being overused for a reason. The reason is that there’s easily manipulatable morons who stop thinking about it. They will defend anything that’s labelled as “for the children” and they will eat even the dumbest reasoning behind it, because they just stop thinking. Just like yourself.
Use your brain. It’s nonsense. New players don’t need this. Only absolute idiots need this, which has nothing to do with new players. New players didn’t need this crap for 16 years and this has nothing to do with survivor bias. Again: Use your brain. You have one in that skull of yours, I’m sure of it. Usually you’re not that dense.
What’s even worse is how you’re using the “think of the children” propaganda to make him look like he’s not thinking of the children. That’s not what smart people do. It’s like attempting to make yourself look good for “caring about children” and attempting to make him look bad for implying that he doesn’t.
That alone already deserves a massive “■■■■ off”, but I don’t want to go that far, because you can do better! No one with a functioning brain benefits from this. The huge amount of people hating it is evidence enough. You’re not that stupid, so please stop acting like you are and start thinking things through again before you defend them.
