You can ignore me because I'm just one of those sub-human Pod People, but I 
consider 3rd and 3.5 ed D&D to be enormously superior to the earlier editions. 
So much so that I'll cheerfully play & run 3.x games, but I won't run earlier 
editions at all. (If offered a chance to be a player in an earlier-edition 
game, I might accept if nothing else is available, but I'll do my best to 
convince the DM to switch to 3.x. Not marketing, just a game I happen to like heaps
