The Globe and Mail writes:
"Greg Vederman, a one-time editor of PC Gamer Magazine and now business development manager with HP's gaming unit, seems to be equally flabbergasted by the audaciousness of [the 24,000 fans who have started a petition to protest the art direction of Diablo III]. In fact, he has created his own petition in response. Raises and Praises for the Diablo III Development Team is an open letter of support to the game's designers in light of fans' impudence.
"It must really suck for you," reads the petition, "having toiled in secret for years on a franchise you no doubt adore just as much as us, to hear immediately following the announcement of the new game, not 'Thanks guys, you rock!', but rather the sound of thousands of mice clicking the submit button on an online petition demanding you de-turd the game."
Well said, Mr. Vederman."
