I think this is the best thing about KS, you actually have a say about the product and not just talking to a corporate wall.
Agreed. On top of that, they are asking for money in advance... not necessarily money for an existing product. They have to pitch their idea and literally win your money over. I've seen a few folks that feel like they are entitled to your money just because they have a legacy. Thankfully, kickstarter doesn't work this way.
I don't envy them in trying to keep everyone happy... but they do have to produce something worth investing in... and going DRM free was the way to get SOME investors ;)
For the folks without a CC... prepaid debits work just fine with amazon payments. Its how I'm going to back them after this weekend.
