I'm out as a mod dudes. Hitting the road.
I wasn't kicked. I left, and NOT because I 'couldn't take the heat'
Just putting that on record. (other mods: if you feel you want to doctor the remainder of this post to protect your ensuing statement then please just at least leave that part up)
Actually- I rather enjoyed the 'heat', and although I must confess I deleted 99% of the hatemail that came my way without even reading it, it WAS rather nice to a have a wee bit of attention and get my Reddit 15 mins, who wouldn't love all that? yummy !
No. The reason I left was simple. I could not give any more fcks about these two crybabies and their 'allegations' anymore. Ugh. Done. Fuck them. Finally, I can say it out loud. FUCK. THEM. Get out of my life. Put it up on your videos GR, Arial Bold- 350pi.
Drop some dramatic music behind it while you fake bawl your crocodile tears.
95% of what they said? Utter, utter shite. I don't even know where to start. Everything was elaborated to the point of comicality, and for me this whole event is still one big surreal joke; one minute I'm feeding my kitty then next I'm scum of the earth-- and the messages weren't from an ex-girlfriend. I've found it all fascinating, but the one thing that really struck me hardest was how nobody ever even bothers doing their research.
Take for example the one fib GR going on about us, saying this had all been a year long battle? huh? One look search our history and you'd know in the jiffiest of jiffies that there has been Jess than a dozen posts about GR since it's incarnation. Hell, they only popped up on our radar in the first place last June because their TLOUII review was condescending to anyone that disliked the game; rubbing salt into everybody's wounds after having wasted $60 on the most disappointing game of all time, and having our fav game character get unceremoniously nine-iron'd by a retconned BrunHilde, and the simple yet wonderfully powerful connection between Joel and Ellie swapped out for a clich Jacobian yawn-fest (welcome to our world Masters of The Universe fans)
I mean I personally didn't even know who GR were until this shitstorm kicked off to tell the truth. After I did bother doing some digging, it took me all of 5 mins listening to one of their streams (about all I could stand) to conclude these two charlatans were up to no good and that this was a well-orchestrated hatchet job aimed at us. And oh-- the melodramatics, the sentimental pleas, the crocodile tears all around, the faux rage, the finger pointing well they weren't kidding when they claimed to be actors. The shameless lies of lazy, immature egoists clawing the walls in their desperation to find ways to escape the reality of having a 'real' job, is what it really is, with no qualms distorting the truth in order to preserve their internet 'fame' and get some controversial content for their flagging fanbase, who sadly soaked up their tall story like bread ina sloppy bowl of Borsht. "Btw I know we're monetizing it but we're giving all our ad revenue to charity!!" gimme a break already. They got one thing right, they are
'comedians ' all right. If they'd actually been sincere they would have backed off the minute our mods did all the sufficient mea culpa's instead of continuously ragging on us and not gloating over their victory in the streams.
