You can ask the Dev's everything under the sun, But they will only answer what they have been told to answer, and they will give the answers they are told to give.
The Dev's are like the musicians in an orchestra, they're the ones that play the piece, but they are given notes to follow and are directed by the conductor. they have no free will.
Jay took 9 months of abuse and stepped down/got moved on before Rob Pardo showed up and took the blame for D3, we should have an "Ask Rob Pardo" thread to find out what is happening with this game. The Dev's are puppets.
