An alternate explanation (Destiny)

who wants to be the guy who swore off buying gold when the price rebounds and starts breaking records. For that guy a gold crash is vindication.

There may be a hint of that, but I suspect we are all victims of algorithms. Those who don't enjoy Destiny, are likely to find content that reinforces that position. I know that when I have a strong reaction to a game, I often will look up what people are saying and it isn't uncommon for me to gravitate towards write-ups that share my reaction. That's totally normal, but it also trains the algorithms. My supposition is that old (former?) Bungie fans don't get the news when the game is doing something great. Or, if they do, it's channeled through a medium that is more akin to their viewpoint. When they come here to discuss concerning news about Bungie/Destiny (something that used to mean a lot to them), it's not out of malice, but its because that is the news they are getting.
