Hmmm what to say to you...well if you look back it all started because SOMEONE ELSE
made a sarcastic comment to ME FIRST
. SO I replied in return!
I only bring up my history and etc to point out that I have been around and active for a long time and extremely involved within the hobby nitch of Traveller. Wether you like me or not, does not matter...it doesn't change the fact that this game has survived all these years on the backs of the players like myself that have bought all the products for the many different versions.
Lets face it the gaming companies survive buy selling products and that is how they make their money. Now when I have said I own it all, that is very very true. I still have all the Challeneger mags and Traveller Digests mags and so that were published. To look at my library one can see that it is huge, that alone when one looks at the amount of money I have spent on all things Traveller over the lifetime of my hobby, I have contributed alot to keeping the game going.
I understand that I am lucky and rare, most folks by my age have long stopped gaming. I still buy it all (Dead Tree HC) and enjoy buying it all...Mongoose Traveller, 2300, and T5 too. I will also keep buying whatever comes next adding to the lines too.
As to Hero System, I liked version 5R and dropped buying anything for version 6. Just like I also stopped buying for D&D and didn't buy anything for D&D version 4 either. It is all resource material in my view anyway, regardless what rules set you care to use.

Um, no. Those who have read my posts and maybe even pay attention to them in the past have seen I rarely get offended. Today, is not that day.
2330ADUSA1 What the heck are you doing? Your posts are really annoying once you start critiquing other people's gaming experiences in relation to yours. I can't make you stop, but I will be annoying myself and call you on it today...
Assertions and statements based on subjective amounts of unspecified "real life" experience in gaming are not in themselves a measure of a more reasoned or better argument. I do not mention my own experience then silence others.
If I was looking for one upmanship, I will go back to LARPing.
