Just to bend over and take whatever a developer or publisher throws at me, pay the money with a smile on my face and tell myself the flaws of the game are "Alright, no big deal." You are very manly.
That's a flaw in that logic. You haven't paid anything yet and therefore you're not in the position to demand anything. You are not a paying customer so buy it or don't. They don't owe you anything.
Yes, this is exactly what all creators/salesmen want. Rather than telling them what you want to buy and the things that mean you're unable to become a customer for the thing they're building, we should all be quiet. That is exactly what every salesman wants, no feedback to help increase their sales. You are a genius logician, well done!
Edit: if you haven't guessed, the words you got wrong there were 'demand' and 'owe', I can almost bet you thought about throwing an 'entitled' in there somewhere. Hopefully you understand what pre-release feedback means and so can understand that no one is a customer of a product not yet completed, that does not mean we have to kill all the alpha/beta testers because the developers have no use for this angry noise about things they could do to make their product better.
Alpha/Beta tests serve a different purpose and those testers are important. Here we had a petition against GFWL on the announcement day, there's no constructive criticism, it's just casual nerd-rage because a group only got what they asked for and not some superior version, which this particular group had in mind (though I'm sure even if they got their superior product, they'd still be fishing for complaints). Fortunately this seems to be the minority, otherwise I wouldn't see a bright future for ports.
Btw, the word "demand" doesn't come from me, as you can see, but it is definitely misplaced.
To be fair, they havent, but the way they've treated this whole port makes me think they're just in for a quick cash-grab.
They're going for a new market, therefore it's a risk and surely no "quick cash-grab", not to mention the decision seems to be heavily based on the petition, which doesn't have to mean anything in the end (as you can see now).
