It is supposed to be fun. Some people are in it for the money, but whatever. The point of the thread is this hobby cannot and will not be fun if we have to put up with dishonesty, lack of integrity, thievery, etc. If you just chalk it up as people being people, at some point, you're going to get really trampled on.
If everyone stuck to their word, was honest, and treated people with respect, this would all be a lot more fun. Backing out on deals is a major part of the problem. The backlash is justified and is part of the solution IMO.
