Hit the nail right on the head with a sledgehammer, particularly the whining on forums bit!

People in the 8-bit scene, for mine, are far more project-minded/community-spirited, and run around the place with a lot less attitude of entitlement when it comes to online happenings with their platform. Without doubt, it's what fans the embers of my interest in the C64 all these years later (despite my love for the Ami)!!

I read wXR's post before your response and, I have to say, you took the words right out of my head! For your astute observation sir, here's a little affirmation from the Fonz too.....
