When I first read some of RUSH's posts on doomworld I put him on my ignore list for a few months, lol. But after getting to know him, especially through Doomer Boards, I've grown to like him a lot. He's a really cool guy. I'm not happy about this at all. It's getting too stressful to be a Doomer anymore. The community is a snake eating its own tail. Way too many people looking for reasons to get pissed off, driving other doom fans away.
I hope this whole feud between Doomer Boards and Doomworld boils out soon because coping with the stress is just an astronomical pointless waste of energy anymore.
I’ve got no beef with dw, the powers that be there seem to have more of an issue with us than we do with them, and they seem to have a special hard on for 40. I saw the toxic gaming communities thread there last week, and some of the users mentioned Doomer Boards as an example of such a community, however a few hours later all the offending posts were deleted from the face of the earth like they never existed and the name Doomer Boards scrubbed clean from that bastion of purity on the Internet. We are a dirty word it seems.

Sometimes, you feel like cleaning the slate, and eliminating distractions if you have stuff on your mind. But once you cool down, you realize rash decisions are unnecessary. Hopefully he returns; I liked his taste in music.
What the heck? This came out of nowhere and makes no sense. The "unspecified reasons" part is especially unpleasant. How the hell is a person supposed to react to a punishment with no explanation? No wonder he went a little crazy.
I disagree. If a friend is about to fucking burn his house down then you at least owe it to him to find out why the house needs to be burned down.
If it's internet addiction (I HAVE EXAMS AND I AM SPENDING ALL DAY ON DW SHITPOSTING MAYBE IF I DELETE MY ACCOUNTS I WON'T DO THAT) then fair enough, although - in my personal experience - you'll probably just end up spending all day on Pornhub instead. But if he's commiting the internet equivilent of seppuku then maybe someone should check up on him, yo?
I get what you’re saying but looking at his language used in that dw pic he doesn’t appear to be in a bad place as it were. Anyways Rush if you’re reading this let us know somehow that you’re ok and doing well bro.

Damn it, I really liked him.. he seemed like a really good natured guy, and was the only one who would write autistic spergs in response to my autistic spergs. I feel bad as there were a few posts that I still had to get back to. Like the one in the video game music thread. Anyway, if you're reading this RUSH; go well, and all the best, dude! :)
That was my misunderstanding earlier, guys. Sorry. I didn't know that RUSH requested to be banned. I asked him what happened and he sent me a screenshot that said "banned". I had nothing else to go off of. He told me he decided to leave the doom community, but I thought that was after what I assumed was an uncalled for banning.
Apologies to RUSH for misquoting him and Linguica for stating unverified facts that cast a poor light on him.

Shame to see such an active member leave so unexpectedly, truly.
All I can hope for is the best, I hope the reasoning behind this was not influenced by something more sinister and that he's fine but seeing how active he was and how quickly and efficiently he axed himself from the community at seemingly random it kinda actually fills me with worry.
I hope he's fine.
40oz And who knows, maybe I'm wrong. But that's extremely unlikely because I'm always right.
Its too tough to tell from simply reading text, but it doesn't sound like he's experiencing some sort of crisis. And I don't really blame Linguica for granting his request without question. Doomworld is a forum where there are over 200 members reading and posting on it daily. Although I can't help but feel that Ling having never seemed to like RUSH in the first place helped in making the decision very easy.
It's kinda like when your favorite coworker quits their job. It sucks that the doom community is going to have one less cool person in it, but at the same time it's not really up to us that he should put up with all of this if his mind is focused on bigger and better things. You can be happy for him without being happy about your own situation. It's just a saddening reminder that being a part of the Doom community isn't fun anymore. It's conflicting with people's daily lives. The idea of Doomer Boards was to give people a chance to diverge from all of that and just be themselves. I can't make sense out of why anyone would have a problem with that, but because some people do, no one can post here with any confidence that they are hurting the feelings of people who don't even want to be here. None of us should have to live with all that guilt.
