I'm really considering leaving this place. I never actually foresaw this happening any time soon but it is. When I made a post in the calender thread about a select few ruining it for the majority, I don't think I've ever made a truer statement on this forum. A select few people on this forum have ruined it for me by helping to make this place that little bit less fun every time they rant about something they don't like that's happened on this forum. Popularity among a forum is a fucking joke and it's high time certain people realised that. I don't know if people consider me as one of those people with an 'ego' but quite frankly I don't have a fucking clue what people are on about when they talk about egos. I challenge someone to come forth and submit a list of those people who apparently need to come onto a forum and somehow gain popularity among people they don't know in order to satisfy their ego and what's more I challenge the staff to allow it. I'm sick of people ruining other people's fun here. This place is meant to be warm and fun but for the past few months it's been the complete opposite because you've always gotta watch what you say because you never know if some little group of people will say that you've got a big ego. Apparently being nice and actually interacting with people here isn't such a good idea because when you do you're obviously just out to gain popularity. But obviously I don't know what the hell I'm on about right? I must just be blowing this whole thing out of proportion right? Wrong. It's about time someone had the balls to raise this issue because I know I'm not the only one who feels this way and I'm actually interested to here what people have to say from the other side of the coin. I've tried to defend this site whenever possible from people who have said negative things about it because I genuinely used to think this was an amazing community but for some reason over the past year or so the foundations of it have just rotted away. I know that's something that no one wants to hear but I think people will agree with me in saying that this place just isn't the same anymore. One of the reasons if because some people here are just, plain and simple, assholes who can't get over themselves. It's funny because I havn't held a grudge with anyone who I've had spats with and yet I still feel like there are people here who could care less whether I was here or not and would probably prefer the latter. But fuck it that's their problem. To sum up, this place is just full of negativity these days. I really enjoy talking to most of the people here and if I do go then I'll miss you. I havn't made up my mind yet (chances are I'll still stay simply because I'm bored alot nowadays lol) but I hope to see some changes here soon whether I'm here or not. I'll take any warnings that are coming to me for bringing this up but it's about time someone said something.
