For the love of Rust

I've been watching (and occasionally playing) Rust for a while now, and while I'm not a big fan of densely populated instances (in which local populations essentially shoot each other to death repeatedly) there is something truly beautiful about the vast, lonely environment it creates at smaller scales.

There's also something glorious to be said for the cavalier attitude of its developer, Facepunch, quoted here on backlash surrounding a new feature in Rust - women.

We understand this is a sore subject for a lot of people. We understand that you may now be a gender that you don’t identify with in real-life. We understand this causes you distress and makes you not want to play the game anymore. Technically nothing has changed, since half the population was already living with those feelings.
