As for posters who moved here to get away from Optimization at WOTC, well, to me that stinks of prejudice and intolerance, so I can't really bring myself to feel sorry for them. It's like feeling sorry for a guy who left his old country club because it was mixed-race only to find out his new club is no longer going to be exclusive.
We all bought this product and have a right to discuss it on these boards. If they aren't interested in what I have to say, they can ignore it. If they are truly repugnant, they may complain how it isn't enough to ignore it, you must instead belittle others who don't. So be it, I'm thick skinned enough to deal with intolerance in all its ugliness.
Oh please. Waving the Intolerance cudgel around? With your THIRD post? How about you make a name for yourself here first? People will be much more likely to take you serious, though I would suggest leaving the Drama Queen antics out of it in any case.
As for Paizo's decision, I disagree, we are the consumers, and although the employees of Paizo run the company, we are responsible for its very existence, and our needs deserve and demand to be their highest priority. Companies that ignore the needs of their customer cease to exist very quickly.
I think you'll find the VAST majority of posters here are perfectly fine without a CharOp forum. Paizo's in no danger of losing their proverbial shirt over this perceived necessity.
(For the record, I enjoyed WotC's CharOp boards and would enjoy one here, but I ain't losing any sleep over it. Though even if I was you're approach is, shall we say, sub-optimal...)
