I believe the fact that people are so quick to fly off the handle with this game is because, yes it is an Alpha stage game, but it's unbelievably stable( all things considered) so I think people tend to forget that it is indeed still an Alpha game.
That said, I'm really not irked by any of this, either the bugs in the game atm, nor the people complaining about said bugs.
I've got plenty of other things to do, and I plan on simply giving Minecraft a break until all the bugs get fixed and this board calms down a bit.
It's hard not to forget it's still in alpha with this many people "testing"it.
I just mean that a lot of the features work. And work well. Prior to the update, I never found any glitches, random crashes ect. Maybe I'm just lucky though.
