So Ken confirmed most of this (8-29-2011);
"Davidsons ‘killing’ Phantasmagoria as it was still going strong: True.
Two teams working on KQ8 at the same time: Partially true. There really was only one team, but I was assigned several ‘managers’ to work above me and those managers were told to not really listen to me and do things their way (presumably, Davidsons’ way?). Hence, the frustration on my part and the fact that KQ8 suffered as a result.
