Absolutely relatable. It's like in LotR, when nazgul were made of people's greedy nature. That's pretty much of the same plot only seeing in different way.In comparison, the community these days is made of petty cliques, filled with people I absolutely detest, acting like they have the moral authority and skill superiority over anyone involved, high from hotboxing on their own farts in their four by four jerking-off session rooms, eager to put down anyone who just happens to voice a non-state-approved opinion. Those ghouls will rise out of their long-forgotten, shallow graves and drown you in the dirt they were resting in, and they will not hesitate nor forget about the littlest slight, making you a persona non grata via the word of mouth. If you just happened to criticize one of their cult members or expressed wrongthink, the entire place is incestous to leave you essentially locked outside, soaking in the storm.
Same stuff, I can't say that I'm in in friendly relations with some of exiles but have a lad of mine that quit this shithope few months ago, completely. Just gave up on shit that running around as a rabid dog that nobody want to finish.I saw a good friend of mine get tarred and feathered in real time, then demonized afterwards, like he's next incarnation of Sergeant_Mark_IV, his earlier contributions to that wankspot be damned. They invite you over to their Discords and wave around a popular name of yours like a flag for a few minutes, then forget you even exist as they are more busy bitching and moaning in their secret whining channels, fishing for asspats where an entire circlejerk of miserable fucks gather around to sink in their pointless sorrow, jealous of the other's perceived success, rather than keeping it to maybe one-two people they can trust, actually trying to fix their lives and get out of this negative feedback loop. Or better yet, why not just organize a literal attack on a single, hapless dude!... which I personally didn't quite like either, but he didn't deserve even a quarter of what came for him. I know, one can see this everywhere else over the web these days, all sprinkled with peak TRAAAAAAANS-ness and every mental issue imaginable on top. Yet, this is not something I'm gonna sign up for.
Even more pity that one of recently notable artists, Wereknight, have done the same. Shame, I had to enjoy his stuff like many other people do, still.
