people like simon, tuote, argiekike, parrotfag, scootaloo, all the russian posters, croats etc. don't have this ego problem at all. I don't think there's a big quality problem on the board. there are definitely bad posts and bad posters but I have no idea why certain posters incessantly focus on meta issues. I have my own complaints about my creativity being stifled because *certain people* have sent me threats. I was going to share some of my doodles I made today, I really wanted to hit submit but I couldn't. I know there are a dozen different branches I could go down that would be fun and a good release valve, but I can't. I am working with the options I have and I don't complain about it - I still try be as creative as I can. I'd like to make videos. I'd like to do a lot more. but I can't.
