Imagine you really love Megadeth. Like, really really love them. As a metalhead, you enjoy their music very much. You, along with your fellow metalheads propelled them to heights by listening to their music and purchasing their albums. It's all good.
One day, however, Megadeth wants to make a lot more money and thus announces that they're going to change their songs to make it far less metal and will begin to make soft rock. As a metalhead, you are hurt by their decision to cater to a larger crowd without any regard to the group that propelled them to great heights.
Now replace Megadeth with Infinity Ward, their songs with Call of Duty, metalheads with PC gamers, and Megadeth's new target audience as console gamers.
That's how we feel.
RE: the olde english spelling of blogge:
As we all know, "blog" comes from the old English "blogge," which traces its roots to Swiss-German "blauch," which itself is thought to be rooted in the Middle High German "blech." Blech, of course, is roughly translated as "sheet metal."
So what does sheet metal have to do with blogging? Everything! After all, the original blogs were engraved on sheet metal (and distributed throughout Europe by Cluny Monks) back in the 11th century.
And while it may look strange to you to see blog spelled "blogge," just keep in mind what they were calling FB a millenium ago: GesichtBuche! Oh, those crazy Middle High Germans...
