Though it's been said many times, many ways...

Making a new post cos I don't feel like commenting...

I've been a member of/reading this group since nearly its inception, and generally like what I read... But for the love of Pete (whoever he is), what's gotten into the group lately? Seems like all people wanna do is complain about what systems they hate or post 100 times about how great their favorite system is. I know the Community Info page says "Tell us what you like, what you don't like, and what game you compulsively play...," but it does get kind of monotonous after awhile.

Why is there such a need to complain about a system? If you don't like it, don't play it. Don't buy books that use the system. Convert the world to a system you DO like, all it takes is a little effort. No one is holding a gun to your head saying "Play d20 or else!" It goes for d20, or the White Wolf MET system, or Warhammer, or whatever...

And if someone god-forbid likes something you hate, is it really necessary to rip into them for 10-20 posts just to tell them how wrong they are? If something bothers you that much, think of all the time and brain cells your using up hating it. Hell, you could be GAMING with that time, or converting something to a system you do like. Or you could just suck it up and deal with it. I don't like paying my rent, but it's just something I have to do, since I don't like the alternative of living on the street. What system a game is isn't life or death.

Okay, I'm done. Feel free to flame me now.
