The fuck.  


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. 

Favorite response:

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.

*not really

**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.

YESSS I loved that reply too ♥

Both sides have good points but they've been covered up by huge amounts of wank. If everyone on GOS became greedy downloaders (like me) and never contributed anything, the creation themes would practically implode. No one can be forced or guilt-tripped into creating though, and I agree, I don't think being excited for a theme means: "PLEASE MAKE MORE THINGS FOR MY ENTITLED ASS!!"

I don't really go onto GOS other than to download things (irony!) so I don't know Jenfold all that well. And I'd hardly say the entirety of GOS thinks it's okay, since I saw GOS members upset about it in the simsecret thread.

I really know nothing of the GOS community other than what you've posted and some other stories heard from the grapevine, but none of them leave good impressions. Just makes me happier that i only go there to download pretty things.

Also, what an abuse of power. Mods aren't there to attack everyone because they have the authority, they're there to regulate and keep things nice and happy on the forum. Saying you're waiting to see something because you're excited is WAY different from saying "hey, hurry up with the stuff so i can download".
And i cant believe someone got banned for pointing out that Jenfold was wrong.

It's people like that that make me hate the internet.
