As wrong as I feel the article is, there sadly is an element of truth to it.
If we listened to some gamers we'd still be stuck playing Pong, if we listened to others Mario would run round with an AK47 and call in precision airstrikes.
They'll never listen to you if you sound like a whiny brat no matter how many exclamation marks you put after the C word or by how many times you threaten to pirate their games, that's a fact.
Some of the petitioners and complainers made reasonable points while others sounded like they couldn't be trusted to put their clothes on in the morning, the devs/pubs just need to listen to the right voices. They appreciate constructive feedback/criticism, whether they act on it is another matter altogether.
I'm not saying anyone doesn't have the right to be angry, of course you have, but if you think posting "f**k YOU *insert evil developer/publisher here*" will be taken notice of then you're sadly mistaken.
BTW the best option to show that you disagree with what a developer or publisher does was, is and always will be DO NOT BUY THE GAME
After reading said interviews posted by the petitioners, Bioware clearly screwed up with ME3's ending (that doesn't mean it can't be enjoyed, just that it wasn't what was promised), hopefully they've learned their lesson for next time.
