What the hell is wrong with these people?
Well there's a lot of backers who also post here (many of us in this thread) so I certainly don't think that its indicative of the general attitude. It would probably help if Brian Fargo posted an update which included the information he tweeted: that this is not an exclusivity deal. But yeah there are a few who just seem enraged that this game will be on Origin at all, regardless of whether or not it will be DRM-free and availible elsewhere - which it will be. People who don't like Origin still have plenty of options for not supporting it; though cagey individuals might also realize that buying it royalty free from Origin costs EA money rather than making them any.

Really this is and shouldn't be different than if it were announced that Gamestop or Walmart had agreed to carry retail copies of the game with 0% markup. Ok yeah that would be a little different - it would be a bigger deal. Oh and glad to see posters like Jason and Linus in the backers section who agree.
