If you do not favor 'our' negativity, then do not dwell on such boards as thee.
I am not sick, tired, or frankly disgusted of your opinion of the fan base of these boards. You have to understand, that not everyone likes Half-life. You will always find someone (including me) who favors Doom and Quake over Half-Life on the majority of general boards.
When you grow up, you'll understand.
