Ok let's get something clear straight of the bat. First, it's not us that should be grateful, it's OE. This is after all a KSed game, and it's thanks to the fans that they got to make it. Second, being open on how they are making the game is something they stated would happen in their first video on KS. Third, aside from updates which are nice we haven't seen much comments from Josh at all, now this would normally be ok IF he didn't comment so much on other forums and social media sites.
We don't have to be privy to the dev discussions to know if something works or not. We know what the end goal is, "a spiritual successor to the IE games" and thus we can comment on what is wrong and why it's not meeting that goal.
As for the degenerative gameplay, it most certainly does not deserve praise and respect. As it stand everything that was done to prevent such gameplay, has caused even more of it by being changed. Things obviously don't work and should be tweaked or changed. We would be doing a great disservice to the game, ourselves and OE if we didn't point out the bad aspects of the game.
