Another Kickstarter Post

I've tried over and over again to put together a post about Kickstarter and my current thoughts on the site/system but it's just not coming together. But I do have the conclusion straight (I think) and it's this: If you don't like a Kickstarter project for whatever reason (the person behind it is wealthy, you're worried that the end result won't meet expectations, you think they are asking for too much money, they're including their own salary in the funding, they didn't give out enough of a breakdown of where the money is going, or whatever else) then don't fund it. Yes, there are some issues with funding on Kickstarter and people are free to have their own set of rules for what they will or won't fund but stop thinking your rules are to be set in stone for everyone or your opinion should be adopted by everyone.

And yes, I see the irony that this could be seen as me pushing my own "rule(s)"on others but at least I'm saying you're free to feel that way.
