The fact is I do want to have fun with GTAOnline, and most of us who at one point or another tried GTA or RDR online, or other games as well, it can be a lot of fun, and the best way to commune with friends and even make new ones is playing the same games you share and love.
That said, I've basically taken several days away from GTA entirely, starting RDR all over again on my PS3, as I just bought a copy and never played it on PS3 before. So..... Hey, if I can do it, folks, remember, you're not the only one NOT playing GTAOnline, and perhaps easing up their servers might help them iron things out, we can't really know, but complaining is not the same as Constructive Criticism.
I have done GTA online with GTA IV, and Red Dead Redemption was a better game in both SP and MP, and I think Rockstar even realized they had done a lot that was right with the San Diego development heading up RDR, so they used Rockstar Games instead of Rockstar North as a way of showing shared assets between the divisions that make up the company, GTAO however uses new techniques, and I know for RDR's MP there were issues as I was playing online, with GTA IV, not as much that I can even recall. There were people who were being racist over their headsets and killing people over and over who would rather play at their own pace and certainly not make it hard for anyone else, me included. The diversity of activity and even playing with NPC in the MP is what helps all of that and the sessions were also limited to a certain number of people. I changed sessions as well as got kicked out, and I certainly didn't get along with everyone who was there either, but overall it was an experience unique from Single Player, and it was worth it overall, Rockstar have strived to offer an experience they feel is worth any cost they implement, this is a mandate from Sam Houser himself, pre- any DLC, as he was talking about what to expect in that regard, at the time
