Rioting amongst our own brothers here at Newz..... –
OK, I know I'm not the most high up person on the food chain around here, but I think most people have known me to be a pretty good person, I think Thadood and fooniman and thetieger can back me up on that one. So hopefully someone will here my ranting and rambling that I'm about to forego.
I HATE THE SCENE IN GENERAL RIGHT NOW. IT SUCKS. PERIOD. No one is helping anyone get anything done for shit. Its all who did what for who and when. Even this beloved site has changed its face from the open source and open armed site it once was to restrictive. I hate it that even respected members like SnipaKilla are being silenced. I once respected charlie_ps2 as the all knowing, his name has been tarnished. Sites are at such a bitter term, no information whatsoever is even passing between them, and it will probably be this way for the rest of time. People's personal info has been brutally sent out over the internet without their consent as "punishment". Modchips that are helping the scene by reducing their wire content are being shunned by newz just because someone talked to is hated here. Crooked reviews have been written at Ownz for a looong time. Admins are persuing legal action against each other over one thing: A PLAYSTATION 2. A simple console for young people's entertainment. All of this fighting over a ****ing black box. U know why? One reason: money is in that black box. Some are concerned about it, some aren't. I seemed to always think newz was the one who was never concerned about money, and I still believe that.
U know what I wish more than anything, people? I wish that Ownz and Newz could just get over their problems and work together. That's right I said that horrible two word phrase: WORK TOGETHER. Ownz may be crooked, and Newz may have admins that don't want anything to do with anything one ounce Ownz related, but that is my wish (besides its my birthday and I DO get one birthday wish ). It's just utter bullshit these days, site wars are the only new developments going on, along with stealing of the SDK materials over at Ownz and "games". Whoopdie do, if I wanna play games, I'll go to candystand.com or download some at Yahoo. Everyone is accusing everyone of "narcing". I swear if I hear that ****ing word again I'm gonna bust out my deuce-deuce and kick some ass.
I'm just dissapointed lately. I just miss the "all open feel" Newz once used to have. Perhaps I can blame other sites for that. Perhaps I can blame crooked members that only want to line their wallets with green. But no matter who you blame, this site, as well as the scene itself, works as a team. We work as a team, or we die as a team. And it seems to me it is dying very well as a team. Anyways, my thoughts.
