You are likely right, it is all emotional. Is that why when I said RKL will completely suck months before launch, I got such a negative reaction in this very thread? I did get some good laughs from the insults.That's every rumor mill and product hype train in the history of the universe. Occasionally they manage to get one right, but they have no shame about being wrong, even if by a massive amount.
For some I suspect there's little joy even if they do manage to get it right, because it's the potential and excitement about what could be that drives people to participate and wrong or right as soon as a product launches, there's always a new hype train for the next product that's just about to depart the station.
