In all fairness, I think we are more than capable of having a discussion about this topic in a mature and respectable manner. If Ash wants it closed then that's another story, but I personally think it's good to be able to openly discuss this. Ash and the Scirra team didn't do anything wrong, so why worry about it?
I have to agree with Ashley though, bagging other game programs is not a polite thing to do... though not illegal, it's still not nice. If it wasn't for programs like Klik and Play, Game Factory, etc... Construct might not even be here. Fair enough I'm sure we all agree that we like Construct better, and drawing comparisons between other software is perfectly fine... but putting someone else down in a obviously non-constructive manner (no pun intended... I seem to do that a lot) is rude and uncalled for.
Just my 2 cents... keep the change
