Well, I'm sad you actually think things I write are hollow. I mean we're not releasing a ton of new info about Diablo III, but I do my best to be open and honest about the pieces of the game that are announced.
Be sure not to confuse "I want to know more" with a mandate PR gag-order. Jay and the developers want to keep these things a secret even MORE than any ideas PR has about making feature announcements. They want to keep it a secret so the game is a surprise, that it's something amazing when you install it for the first time. I don't think those ideals are hollow. I also don't think they're absolute, and once we get to beta there will be plenty more to discuss before release.
I don't think your posts are hollow in a sense that you are dishonest. I think what the poster meant is something else. Years back, when blizzard was a lot smaller, the rules for employees about talking to the community were less strict I guess. Additionally some posts in the forums were made by actual developers.
This gave the gamers a lot more insight, since the people posting were actually completely involved in the development AND had more freedom to talk about the stuff they were doing. Since you are very rarely allowed to give out new information, your posts often seem like the whole "community communication" was outsourced.
It's like calling your ISP when your internet does not work, and the person on the phone is some guy who is not involved with the actual technical side of the problem. It can get frustrating.
We all know that you have to stick to the blizzard rules, and thus I think it's unfair to personally attack you for it. Still I wish, you had more freedom to chat about the actual game with us.
It's not like it would take the fun out of the game when it's gonna be released! We will know all that stuff anyway when the beta starts...
I hope my post is comprehensible, English is not my mother-tongue
