The main purpose of official forums is not for players to communicate with developers.
It is for players to communicate with each other, and for developers to broadcast messages to players (eg. patch notes.) I think forum goers would be much happier overall if more people realised this. And if marketing departments via community managers want to scavenge forums for feedback, the feedback would be more accurate if players just focussed more on talking to each other, rather than competing for dev attention.
Or in other words, GC should just stop feeding the forum posters. Plus it would stop us feeling so much that EU players are less important.
