The problem for me isn't what Notch said/not said (he didn't say much, and only said things when people wanted clarification, which he gave). And the co-founder agreed on the initial tweet, which seems to have been totally forgotten.
It's the fanboyism on both sides that gets me. But it's the same in every fandom (and I consider Minecraft to have a fandom nowadays). I just don't want to read it.
I admit that I unsubbed Yogscast recently, but not for this. I subscribe on a lot of people who I don't really watch anymore, and it was time to clear some of them out (I'm down to 71 now). Still need to trim the sub box more, though.
