I am in full agreement here. I've become disgusted with some publisher's intentions of utilizing Kickstarter or other crowdsourcing mechanisms to take money from consumers as a way to cover development costs and reap the benefits of future sales.

Indie-start ups and individuals who really need the cash and can't secure it from venture capitalists or other sources are the only people who should seek the refuge of Kickstarter.
