Actually, I wasn't referring to either of us. While we have a difference of opinion about how to interpret a news article, we have so based on the merits of the facts and the strength of our arguments. We have not devolved into
with pointless name calling and baiting. I was commenting, as Rhone pointed out, on the negative commenting on the forums. I agree I feel sorry for those sad little people who only find the joy in making anonymous statements for the sole purpose of creating strife and anger in others.
But how much is enough to make you feel that Gencon has done enough. Managing all of those events has a cost, wages, equipment, lost revenue for the space, etc. Now I'm making an assumption that Gencon is donating all of that to make the charity events happen but I'll give the benefit of the doubt as they've given no reason not to. They could scrap all that, and just go with a simple "would you like to donate" button on the website and say they will match it. But i don't think they would get as much money as they do now.
In the end, Gencon provided fun ways for people to contribute to a charity. Did Gencon get credit for the contribution, yes. Did they deserve it, depends on who you ask, I say yes, you say no. Either way, charities got money they might have gotten otherwise.
