This has nothing to do at all with my grudge against GOS in the least. Nothing to do with my actual dislike of Jenfold.
But really, now. This was uncalled for. There was nothing wrong with what those people said, just that they were waiting for the mythology stuff. As in, "I'm excited to see what people will make for mythology!" Let's say you make bracelets. If people tell you, "I can't wait to see what kind of gemstones you put in your next batch!" then should your response be, "Why don't you fucking make your own gemstone bracelets, you greedy bitches"?
Really, now. The entirety of GOS thinks this is okay? There's a Team Jenfold?
Fucking hell. I could reregister at the forum if I choose to. For some reason I can view the whole damn thing and download without proxies. But I don't care because I would not want to be a part of that kind of community. It's a clique - you might be one of the favorites, but if you take a wrong step once, you'll have hyenas on your back. In this case, these people did NOTHING wrong. I don't care what everyone has to say about entitlement or laziness - there's nothing wrong with being excited to see what someone's going to post next for a specific theme.
Frankly...I'm glad I was banned from there.
It's funny* - I can think of a lot of ways to discourage "leeching", if people downloading other people's creations is really such a problem.** Most of them are more effective than snapping at people expressing excitement. And none of them have that pesky little side effect of actively discouraging sharing.
But I guess basic human decency just isn't gawth enough.
**If the mods really frown so much on people downloading stuff without giving something in return, why doesn't GoS require registration to access content? Am I supposed to feel guilty because GoS has been my go-to place to download pretties for years, and I've contributed maybe two or three things myself?
Seriously, GOS. You might be the biggest forum out there aside from Mod the Sims, but get the fuck over yourselves.
