A Treatise on Why I Don't Like 4e

Please note that I am expressing my personal opinion here.  Mine.  I'm not telling ANYONE who likes 4e that they shouldn't like 4e.  Go for it!  If you are having fun then keep doing it!  Please!  :)

I just read this post this morning and I think it epitomizes FOR ME why I DON'T LIKE or enjoy 4e.

The author has written a very good post and I'm sure that his advice and ideas will be useful to 4e DMs.  This IS NOT a criticism of him.  In fact, you could consider my calling his article out a compliment!  He has created an excellent summary that I think cuts to the very core of why 4e doesn't do it for me.

So, a heartfelt thanks goes out to Ameron.  Sincerely.  Your post articulates exactly why I don't like 4e and I very much enjoyed reading it.  :)

Well done, I agree, well handled.

Personally, I hate the fact that one even needs to have such a prominent disclaimer. No one should have to apologize for their opinions, especially preemptively. The next step is self-censorship.

@Joseph -- I agree about the disclaimer, but I wanted to be extra clear/non-combative since I was linking to someone else's stuff. If I had written the "thesis" myself, I would have dispensed with the disclaimer. :)
