Do you know what this site has devolved into this passed month? A bunch of crying children who feel slighted for absolutely no reason. I mean it's pathetic. The amount of "this site is overrun and controlled by ___ fanboys," the sarcastic responses on any number of articles and blogs by whiny "I'm not represented properly" fanboys, it's just sad.
Here's the facts people, there are only 2 things that this site is overrun with. Fanboys of ALL kinds, and confirmation bias. Over the past week I've been contacted by all kinds of pissed off fanboys of a specific group, claiming that I'm a fanboy of a specific group and that the proof is in my 6 Bubbles, telling me that I don't criticize a certain company and avoid blah blah blah. Yet, I was recently debubbled for alleged trolling against this opposing group down to 5 bubbles but this site is overrun right? Wrong.
The fact is people who are pissed off that they don't get to act like idiots and troll everywhere are the ones being debubbled and the ones talking the loudest about how the mods are corrupt and this site has too many of one side. The indisputable truth is that these very same people wouldn't open their mouths if their bubble count were higher and they could go on putting down whatever opposing side they wished whenever they wished. This fanboy war and raging superiority complexes is pathetic.
I've been given examples of forum numbers, people who were debubbled, comments that were censored, all in some attempt to showcase that one side is a minority, the other a majority. Newsflash, this isn't society and it's not racial issues. Every single person on this site has a story about a time when they were debubbled unjustly or unfairly. Every person on this site has a story where they felt they were not treated properly by a mod. GET OVER YOURSELVES!
You're all seeking out the problems you claim exist. You're digging your own graves in that respect. "So if company A does this it's the worst thing ever but when company B does it they're godly and righteous." <- Read that and tell me that that isn't pathetic. You're trying to tell me that the kind of person writing that isn't LOOKING for the kind of people he/she claims is the problem?
Give it up. People will react to news. They will want to see news they like more than news they don't like. They will talk about negative news more than positive because that's human nature. Why else do you think most news stories on television aren't happy ones? If you don't like that most of the news about one thing is negative while most of the news about another isn't, then either leave or just look for the positive news you want. If it's not out there whose fault do you think that is?
Bottom line, this is a gaming news website. It has literally no impact on your life unless it's your job to run it so stop the crying.
