Most of the people in that thread that for serious don't participate don't participate because of the financial/time commitment.
The people who have said stuff about the bitching? Bender and Hab? They are memes they bitch so much about everything. GHERU? Don't play like that dude isn't in the top 10 of bitchy people on this website.
Melon left the group pre-spinoff because he didn't like any talk in-thread that wasn't about the book.
The n00b voters? If they're going off the last two weeks of course they're going to vote bitchy.
Oogyboy and Sgt. Marvel? Eh, idk. Maybe they were expecting a thread with only reviews. Our version of the Review Group has never been that. You want to see what happens when it's just reviews and only reviews? Go read the Bendis version of the RG that inspired Twigg to start this group. Boring as fuck.
Starlord wanting to leave bums me out. Not having these giant blow ups and all the nitpicky buildups to them would probably help with that.
Also in general terms of the "bitchy" complaints, I think some of it is just misunderstood lutz and in-jokes. Maybe I need to tone that down a bit since I maybe am a source for the complaints in that regard, but I do that in every thread not just RG threads so it's not like I'm going to become a different poster just because Hab isn't in on the joke.
