I feel my post was complimentary, diplomatic, civil and constructive. Also, you talk about my self-centered attitude when you demand that I tell you how much not having this product in my "grubby" hands right now affects my quality of life? It's not a rhetorical question, but my answer is not for public display.
I have been closely involved in this thread for months and am continuing to provide Val with my individual perspective as we all do. As a successful entrepreneur, I imagine Val takes in all perspectives and, in the end, makes his own decision.
But isn't that the whole substance of your statement? It's the fact that in spite of that positivity, there is a shift in anticipation to resentment because Val is providing the best possible experience for his consumer. Hidden things, special things to special guests. Yes, it was an overal positive post, but by ending it on a negative tone, it sets a negative tone for what you want to present. Especially by emphasizing that it's a feeling of resentment for someone who didn't have to come onto this forum to solicit opinions. The only part where the resentment comes from is that you, the customer, have yet to receive it in spite of the fact that you know it exists, it's going to be released, and it's not some nonexistant vaporware. It's like Darkfireblade said, It's all in your head.
Yes, you have been a part of this thread for months and have been providing Val with your opinions. And we get that you have enjoyed his presence here. But as Val is a valued guest here, I'd say that rather than emphasize building resentment and pushing that sentiment by brooding over that idea, just let it be. On that note, also remember that DJSquared may be a bit more blunt than usual due to personal circumstances.
Edit: and to emphasize all this, I think if we look at Roma in particular, she has been especially patient due to the fact that she was not part of the preorder lineup and has to wait for the december release. So she has to wait even longer! and she's been around this thread for awhile and is a fan of the M80's and V-Moda as a whole! But she doesn't seem to give off that vibe that she'll die if she doesn't have her headphones by tomorrow. It's incredulous that a crowd grabbing pitchforks to demand something they want when they will eventually, and much earlier than other consumers, receive the item. A quality item. But that they're pushed into irrational fear by sudden delays.
