It was a poor choice on my end to use DA as a symbol for indie toymakers, but I doubt anyone her but the old-timers remember Beast Labs and what a giant clusterfuck that was.
Maybe people constantly come to their defense because what you're saying. Someone "jumped down your throat" because what you're saying wasn't necessarily true, not because you were lying but because you didn't know. When I see someone criticizing something I enjoy, be it a game or show or product, based on misconceptions I can't help but tell them why they're incorrect because it's disheartening to see someone dislike something because they don't know any better. If they still try it with the new knowledge and don't like it then that's fine. If you don't want to purchase from DamnAverae that's okay, but it's not okay to feel hesitant from ordering from them based on wrong information like assuming nothing can be done about a wrong product or disatisfactory color. I don't own any of her products either, and I'm not sure if i will just because they don't suit my personal tastes in what I'm looking for in a toy, and that's fine if you feel the same way.
I'm sorry you've had a a poor experience with an indie company, it happens, but at the same time you can't lump all of the companies together because of one poor experience. It's not fair. There are plenty of indie makers who are fantastic people and wonderful artists who continue to create innovative and interesting products that are accessible to many people. At the same time, Bad Dragon used to be an indie company. You can't discredit a business or practice just because it's smaller, that doesn't make any sense.
