Single Status Update
I'm pretty sure this has gone on long enough.
The state the community degenerated into such a state that respected and talented individuals are leaving or considering leaving is an important subject, one which deserves a chance to actually be discussed more than any other subject. The fact at least two of Doomworld's moderators wish to try to deny us this right rather illustrates the low to which we appear to have sunk.
In fact, Bloodshedder's statement could be equally applied to Doomworld's current moderation "policy". While some of DW's forum staff are doing an admirable job, others most certainly are not. Moderators are supposed to act impartially and for the greater good, not because they're in a (seemingly permanent in some cases) bad mood, nor for their own personal interests. In some cases, I'm not sure why certain staffmembers were ever hired in the first place, given their behaviour and attitude before they were hired... some of them seem to have been given power merely because they were friends of other staffmembers, not because they were the best choice for the role.
Oh, and let's not forget that one of the people involved in illegally obtaining KDIZD resources just happens to be a DW moderator...
If I end up getting banned simply for providing this little bit of criticism, well that'll prove my point more than I ever could, and I hope anyone who's actually read this will bear that in mind. I love Doomworld, and the whole point of this little rant is I want it to go back to its former glory - in the case of both staff and forum-goers.

All the shouting and shit throwing in this thread really DO prove Nick's point. I thought NewDoom was full of noobs and retards, but to my big surprise, this thread has more.
What puzzles me is that everyone thinks this has to do with KDiZD, even though Nick says that people have been shitbags for a long time and this has nothing at all to do with KDiZD being leaked by dron. I always thought that Doomworld was a bully place, and this has now been explicitly proven. If people wants to treat others like shit, don't expect the victims to hang around anymore.
Over at the ZDoom forums, there was a thread about an invite-only Doom community. This idea has my strongest ever support.
EDIT: oh, just one more thing:
