Everyone is acting like Something Awful goons are going to kick over everyone's sandcastle at the playground. They're a bunch of gaming enthusiasts from a forum on a humor website, nothing more. Yes, they screwed people over in EVE online, but that's not even their real claim to fame, their claim to fame is being a community on the internet that sometimes produces neat things. Living in fear of THE GOONSWARM is like saying "Oh my god, 4chan is coming! Hide your kids! The game will be RUINED by people from a certain online community playing the game!"
The game is not going to be ruined just by a few more people playing the game, this game is not EVE online and you have no reason to fear a swarm approach since that sort of tactics doesn't even apply here, hell if anything you have more to fear from the massive amount of russians that will be playing the game than the Something Awful goons. Just calm your jimmies and move on, because seriously, this is not a subject that warrants MULTIPLE THREADS.
Is there something wrong with being from Russia?
I agree with everything else you said, but you might want to watch your comments.
