He posts well articulated reasoned posts. This often angers much of GD as they aren't used to such things and it confuses them.

I don't think he's disrespectful or rude at all, but I do think that people take it a bit worse than, say, Morello, who will either admit a problem or give a damn good reason as to why it works the way it does.

However, as Griftrix says, he's not a game designer, so he can't take a position the way Morello can, because it's not in his jurisdiction within the company.

I saw the thread earlier where Griftrix was accused of comparing oranges to apples, and I don't think his arguments were as unsound as you imply. They were purely theoretical, though, so of course they can't hold as much weight as when one of the actual designers walks in and says "this was what we were thinking."

So in all, I think people are being a bit unfair and giving him a bad rap for being involved with the community.
You pretty much got it here. I have no idea what's balanced or not balanced, or what design's intentions are, so I can't speak to those. But, there are so many discussions that are interesting to me on GD that I want to participate. I just present my limited knowledge and hope that people with more experience can fill out the gaps. So far I think it has worked well. I have seen some really great objective discussions on GD.

I really haven't read what you have said regarding the topic, but I really like that you post. Many employees for game companies are afraid to post on forum's I love it when I see it, especially when they aren't a designer but still give their opinions about topics that are outside their area.

Usually my "straw man" arguments are meant to be hyperbole.
