In addition, I'd like to add that nobody is being paid for any of their involvement here. Not the mod developers. Not the pack makers.*ahem* Some of us are more patient than others, and obviously you have been patient for some time and are rather fed up with the lack of communication and such. This is understandable, but I think it went a bit out of control here.
I do think that it is rather rude to call my forum buddy a "parrot" who is "championing them for their hard work" when you think they have done nothing. All he said was that you were being disrespectful, and, in all honesty, you kind of are. A lot. Also, @Padfoote had just told us to stop name-calling and personal attacks.
I completely understand your desire for increased communication from the FTB team, and I even support you on this. A quick (actually) weekly hi would be really nice just to know that our devs are still alive and breathing. If life gets in the way, knowing that would tell us that it's the reason why the pack is delayed.
I do however, think that one should not insult the people who run this place, even if either them or you feel attacked, especially since they carry the almighty banhammer. A simple apology would probably do the trick, and also get everyone to calm the freak down. Seriously, everyone, calm the freak down.
I could understand the lack of patience IF we were paying for DLC, but we're not. In fact one of the games I've played on-line since 2006 went through an 18-month period of similar behavior in their forums... It was just over a year before we found out that the reason no new content or info was being released was due to a lawsuit between two partner companies. Sometimes things happen for reasons, and in that case one partner ended up losing their exclusive electronic rights to the IP in question.
