Why would Patrick say this is frustrating? It is only frustrating if you think this is some sort of game, which it isn't.
Honestly, this really shouldn't even be on a video-game site. The whole exchange came off as horrible because we have someone making this out to be more then it is, asking questions which the creator doesn't want to answer.
Even the creator is kinda like, "look man this isn't even a video game, why are you asking me these questions"
