Quote fromQuoted from Umaro on page 8 of the "Countdown Box" thread... I've bolded the part I have deemed most informative.
. You know what that is, me launching this site in the year 2000. I see your join date is in 2007.... for the last 7 years I've been waiting for some type of simple yes or no if a Diablo game is in the works. Not only have I waited, but I run this site on and off, and, to date, I've PAID thousands of dollars out of my pocket to do it all. Do you want to know the only thing I'm getting in return for all this hard work? A single piece of info that I know about a month before you do....
It basically screamed this to me:
"I've waited to hear yes or no for 7 years, but I only get to know a month ahead of you."
Thats really interesting, i just noticed that this means, he got the info from blizzard.
