Steam forums tend to be gamefaqs-level for every game. I won't say they're the worst forums I've ever posted on/read, but they're up there.
That said, I kinda understand why there is some misappropiated rage, what Stardock is doing is unusual, and I think a bunch of folks don't understand it. I love it personally, as I think it should end up a good value (but I will expect at least $60 of post-release expansions+DLC).
I don't know if you'll get good feedback from all 1000 expected founders, I suspect many fall into my category where I'm not really capable of giving great feedback, and got this for the value proposition of post-release content.
