>Why can't *things* happen?

Heh, you don't seem to understand

You see, from all the years I've been involved in the community I've learned something quite significant: if there's ONE thing the Doom community is good at, is whining.

AHHH BOY, PEOPLE SURE LOVE TO BITCH ABOUT SHIT. And this has been going on for over 15-something years.

>Why is X mod/wad popular? There's a lot of other stuff far better than X! I hate hearing about X all the time!
>Why people play X game mode all the time? Can't we just switch to another game mode for a change?/Why everyone plays in X? Why everyone doesn't play in Y, instead?
>Why is X so SHIT in A, whereas X plays just fine on B? I WANT PEOPLE TO WORK ON X TO BE PLAYED ON A!!!
>Why everyone plays this way? I want EVERYONE to play ~MY~ way, the way Doom was MEANT to be played!

Do they actually do SOMETHING about it? Nope. 9 out of 10 cases, they never will. They're either

>Too lazy
>Too scared
>Lacking of self-confidence
>Too lazy
>TOO FUCKING LAZY HORY SHET

At some point, people actually DO shit, but in the 99.3% of cases it's too fucking late, the damage is done and irreversible, and every effort is in vain. Shit's fucked.

>"But not everyone is like that!"

DUH! I never said everyone were moaners. There's a big part of them, yes, but fortunately this seems to be changing. Seems.

I've yet to see people recommending more stuff in a broader way; kmxexii is doing a good work reviewing obscure wads in his blog, whoever updated the Doom infopic is also doing an acceptable work, but truth be told, there's MORE to be done.

Everything else I forgot to mention? Why should I mention it when you guys know it already, so, let's do our part TOGETHER instead of bitching like always.

>"You seem to speak as if X was so easy to do!"

IT IS. Engrave this in your head in brass letters: NOTHING in this fucking life is impossible. We can achieve ANYTHING we want.

If it hasn't happened, it means it hasn't been tried HARD enough.
