Even if they don't represent the company, the tacit allowance of their insults to those who offer an opinion that is anything but glowing will assuredly sway at least some people that this is not a community to which they want to belong. It isn't a good look for the company.
So now the dogpilers will do what they normally do, and as this very thread has shown with people posting exactly the same thing I'm talking about, L&L will do nothing to rein in their dogs. Even, as shown by another poster, when those offering criticisms also do things like report bugs they've found, only to be sarcastically told not to do the thing about which they're reporting the bug. It's astonishing the behavior you allow because those x+n posters basically work as free tech support for you.
Don't waste your breath here. I check the blog periodically and, as usual, there have been no updates regarding Version 3 in almost a year. For some, the natural thing to do is come into the forums to see if there is any news. If you have the nerve to ask about it you can expect to be attacked and insulted. I find this true of the moderators as well.
The answer you'll usually get is to search through previous posts and look at the bug reports. That's right. The company sees no need to provide a simple service of giving an update, no matter how small. They expect you to dive into the forums to search for your answer. An update from time to time (with no due date) is not too much to ask, but apparently L&L disagrees.
