I felt the same anger for a while. I still do. But I've been reading the design/development column on their site and I agree with most of the issues they're addressing. 3.5 IS a solid game, and one that I enjoy... however, it's not without its flaws, and two of the main ones are speed of play and the unmanagability of the PC's at high levels. Challenge Ratings fall apart quickly past 14th level, with parties either being vastly under- or over-matched depending on their unique abilities.
