Pedants

One thing that does tire me out is people who nit pick over the smallest issue with a ruleset, pointing out what they percieve to be a major flaw. They usually make a sweeping comment without clarifying that is their opinion and they tend not to accept any counter argument to the contrary. These same people don't seem to write or publish their own rules, just criticise other peoples efforts.

Agreed, for that type the direction is clear if you don't like the rules don't bore me about why you think is wrong with them, write your own set, or rod off and play something else, preferably not with me.

That's one reason I started the games weekend. Sometime the rules become crystal clear if you play them with the author or the play test team.

Some people are doomed to be unpopular opponents?

Yes we have all come across them. I do try to be inclusive and welcoming but attitude is very important. As I get older I find I'm more choosy with who I  spend my leisure time with

Yep I know a few also.
I also know a few who are all fired up with a new period and encourage a group to get involved, set a date for the new game and then fail to turn up with their agreed stuff!
