As of today I am no longer authorized to post in the soapbox, asked Jody to remove my badge and so the story ends, my friends. I'm no loger gonna be an active user, just dropping by every once in a while to see reviews and such. Definitely not active in the community anymore though. I'm not gonna make up excuses, I just simply don't feel like being here for anything else than the couple of good people I met here and the occasional review of a game maybe I'll someday play. It's kinda hard maintaining calmness and you can't use the F word and the majority of the community is made of 15 year old Master Chief worshippers. Those of you who give a damn know where to find me. So, somebody write a good editorial so that there is somebody to fill in for me in the touchy subjects area of the soapbox. Bye.
That really sucks. However, I understand where you are coming from. I look forward to your future work, wherever it may be posted.
I only sporadically stop here myself, so I know how you feel. At one point I was on the verge of becoming a heavy user but I realized that I'm more apt to spend my limited online time at deviantART. This site is just too hard to deal with sometimes, with all the Wii-bashers, Master Chief worshippers and the like.
I agree with you about the Master Chief worshipers lol I wanna leave Gamespot for good but I paid good money on this site for a premium account. Even though I canceled it months ago I still wanna get my money's wroth out of it.
Damn, GS really knows how to make good people leave. I can't wait to see how their business strategy pays off in the long run... personally I expect to be giving alms to the editorial staff. Oh who am I kidding, I don't think alms are even part of the religion I don't believe in! ahhh..... underpaid, and overworked GS staff. Brings a smile to my face... that and the gaping holes in their sites, checks, etc. Aaaaanyway, take care man.
I've already seen your new work, and I like it. That's why I added you as a friend here, and on your new venue, as well.
