#2 hatred in the gaming industry: Ed Greenwood.

I'm interested in hearing the follow-up on this one. I admit to being fully biased, with both personal and business dealings with Ed -- but I think he's a great guy who's not only brilliant and prolific, but a lot of fun as well. So ...

Yeah, I would say perhaps it's the people who do things WITH Ed Greenwood's stuff, rather than the man himself. He's pretty much one of the coolest guys in the industry. He's your next fantasy gaming experience!

The episode will have the full reason behind the hatred of each item.

Just a note- the list goes from bad to worse in terms of controversy  Smirk

Well, Ed Greenwood is about as good a writer as you are a game designer.

Neutral and intelligent comedians and podcasters, yes.

I look forward to the reasoned debate that shall inevitably ensue on the Intarwebs.

Well, Ed Greenwood is about as good a writer as you are a game designer. 

I know that was intended as "damning with faint praise," but your accidental compliment has made my day! Thanks Josh! You're the wind beneath my wings.

As with the other times we say that we " hate" a person it is really more what they represent to the gaming world, and may, in fact, have very little  to do with that person.
