And I agree, which is why I fail to understand why people can't see past the mistake and appreciate the letter for the sentimental value it was meant to give.
I mean, why go down the path of being frustrated, angry, and what not, if you acknowledge it was an honest mistake? That seems like a weird reaction to me.
Even the idea that you would think Blizzard intentionally chose not to update the letter, or desired to dishearten the community, that seems very foreign to me. I mean, why would they do that?
So ultimately, should you not always end up with the thought: "It was probably just a mistake" and then forgive it as such? Mistakes happen, right?
See this is why I feel it's very difficult to just leave as you suggest, because it's very difficult to not respond to something you feel is not right (for a lack of better words).
You're saying I dismiss people's opinions as insignificant. But that's not what I've said. What I've said is that my opinion on the subject is that it's insignificant (why make such a big fuzz out of such a small thing?). There is a difference. What I've said in regards to other people's opinions is that I think they're overreacting. I haven't dismissed them.
Specifically, I said this:

See this is an attempt to dismiss pretty much everything I've said, is it not?
I find it slightly weird that people get so upset that I used, for example, the phrase "Haters gonna hate" and the word "butthurt", but then at the same time don't hold their own language to the standard they preach when responding to me.
It's probably the green text, but even then, it seems a bit hypocritical.
