My standards are pretty average and thats why I even own RPG books in the first place, I expect some level of balance issues and rules errors. I don't believe that the ACG was bad because my standards were too high, I think it was bad because Paizo can and has done better. When people hear a core Paizo book they hear that they are going to get a quality product worth their money and it was advertized as such. I wouldn't go far enough to say that it was false advertising, but I do feel lied to and betrayed after all those blog posts hyping up a product that doesn't deliver.
I'm sorry, but if you feel "lied to and betrayed" your standards are not average.
The average Pathfinder player doesn't get the ACG. They don't read blog posts. They don't post on the message boards. And they certainly aren't so emotionally involved with the product that they'd feel betrayed by the sort of errors people are reporting.
None of which is to say that you're feelings are invalid. They're just way, way stronger than average.
