Everyone inside a linguists field of expertise shies away from calling literary devices "figures of speech" nowadays, Merriam-Webster be damned.
However, that does not change the fact that your misuse of a, let's use your definition this time, hyperbole has in no way enhanced your intended statement.
The meaning is slowly falling into obscurity, but still stands. Information assymetry can be dispelled with a simple source citation. Personally, as soon as I conduct the appropriate research I would post my findings, but…

I wish you once again a plethora of patience in your pursue of reasonable change, as I will continue to lean back and enjoy your attempts with the others until it is time to conduct another witch hunt, which by the way I find much more romanticizing* than a Crusade.
…you can carry on with your hunt. No Malleus Maleficarum will prove itself enough to take me down, as long as your prejudices and interpretations plague your comments and cloud your senses.
Logic and reason (mis)guided my attempts of making peace with you. Since you're either unable and unwilling to settle this with a genuine gentleman's gesture, then I'll carry on with my crusade.
Fargone asked me why I thought I could communicate any better with the developers. Given the current state of the game, I must say I couldn't do it any worse than you did all these years. Some of you managed to alienate yourselves away not only from the game, but from its active population and from the people that went from being players to employees.
Time shall tell.

Let me thank you for actually providing an explanation: You would not accept I am right even if I were at this point due to your bias, thus rendering this whole thread futile, as there's a rather decent chance Callonia would argue SK is in smoldering ruins even if it weren't.
Furthermore, I actually saw the game he's complaining about: ignoring the fact that he made a few mistakes, given that I've been active enough to actually carry a discussion about the game and its state, I must add there is no point in this thread, none of his ideas stand after a few test runs with the file he decided to champion. Saying that he had a valid point for 9 sets is not a stretch, is an outright lie.
