As a HoNbasher myself, I have to admit that there is no harm in giving it its own section on this site.
It may be an ugly reskin, but people are entitled to their own taste and opinion, and you can't blame them for picking it over DotAr. No need to boycott anything. Give your support to what you like, and ignore the things that you don't, as simple as that. I don't like seeing how much money goes into HoN either, but there's nothing we could (and should) do about it.
HoN will either improve, and become something worthy, or it won't and it'll end up like Demigod.
Also, calling LoL a failure is a very harsh move, since it's [i]gaining[/i] popularity.
