To be fair its in the title. 'Please don't buy Shadow of War'. Granted its more of a request than an order.
If someone is making a comment like "i dont appreciate being told what to do" to that question, even with the word please, that seems odd.
Like if a sign said please drive responsibly it would weird to object to being told what to do.
It just seems to me like it was the only pro-other side angle that they could come up with.
