THE OFFCIAL L4D2 Boycott Group is open, you can join if you desire so...
As the newly announced L4D2's prices are shown in Amazon, the fans have started a group in steam to boycott the new game. The highly anticipated group has reached over 5000 members by 6/4/09
The group plans to change Valve's direction on the upcoming game. Apparently while games like Team Fortress 2 are $19.99, fans of L4D were not happy to pay $49.99 for L4D to begin with, but when amazon started pre-orders for L4D2 with the same price tag things turned bad.
Now the already newly developing community awaits Valve's decision on the new game.

* Significant content for L4D1 was promised, and never delivered
* Valve put little faith in L4D1 since they almost certainly started working on L4D2 right after release
* The fact that L4D2 is nearly identical to L4D1 will decimate the community for both games
* The announced date is not nearly enough time to polish content or make significant gameplay changes
* The new character designs seem bland and unappealing so far
* L4D2 is too bright to fit in with L4D1's visual aesthetic
* The fiddle-based horde music is extremely disliked, though the differently orchestrated music is otherwise welcome
* L4D2's release will result in a drop in quality and frequency for L4D1 content, even compared to before
* The community has lost faith in Valve's former reputation for commitment to their games post-release
