Sick of Sixth! And it ain't even out yet!

Yes, I'm already sick to death of sixth edition Warhammer 40,000, and it hasn't even been released yet!  That's because so many bloggers have been running all these 6th-related posts, most of which are later shown to be baseless because SIXTH EDITION ISN'T OUT YET.  It's funny how our little hobby blogosphere so closely resembles the greater media circus: everyone is so eager to be the first to run with a bandwagon story that they take whatever little snippet of rumor the hear through the bathroom stall and yell out to the sky.  The result is months and months of baseless blogging, most of which is soon proved wrong.

Actually, it isn't PROVED wrong, cuz 6th ain't out yet.

I know many people are excited about the coming rules revision and therefore want to read and run with everything that comes down the pike.  "What if this is true, wouldn't that be exciting/disappointing?"  "I heard it was like this and here's the skinny!"  Etc.  But please, for the love of the Emperor, wait just a few more days and then run THE ACTUAL FACTS.  Is that so difficult?  Patience, fellow geeks, please.  Just wait a little longer...

I hope no one is offended by my opinion here.  If you've run spot after spot on the prototypic, not-yet-confirmed 6th ed rules I'm not trying to single you out as somehow being a bad person.  I'm just saying, we're close enough to find out what the REAL deal is.  Can't you showcase some of your models or give us a cool battle report in the meanwhile?

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
