A bunch of articles that just regurgitate information from other sources and present in a safe and neutral manner that appeals to the community would be so incredibly mind numbingly boring.
And we had that. And his name was Brad Nicholson, and people gave him shit for not having an opinion and regurgitating information... whereas the community now gives Patrick shit for having aggressive opinions. Something they do not hold against Jeff, Alex, Ryan, or Brad on a daily basis.
note: I'm agreeing with you. Hard to convey via text :D
Yeah, that is a main point of why I get so aggravated. Jeff in particular is extremely opinionated (I mean he got Syndicate on the top 10 of the year list, with barely any discussion, and I hate the game but I love him for that), but there is no outcry over that, whereas everyone jumps on Patrick for it.
and they jump on Patrick for writing useless articles but everyone thought the article about Triple H's hair was fantastic.
