Funny how you persist with this 'we are the real
fans' snobbishness and elitism, yet completely ignore
rebuttals to your dubious crap, like what follows:

Never say this again. You're making yourself sound like an idiot.
No matter how much longer some people have been fans of LRR, or how diehard they are, or whatever, it makes no difference to the point that people on the Escapist who are watching the new LRR videos every week are just as much LRR fans as us here on the forums. Just because they heard of LRR a bit later and have some catching up to do and haven't seen all of their content just yet doesn't make them any less a fan than you or me.
We've got a lot to thank these people for, even if we don't know them like we know the forumgoers. When it comes down to it all of these viewers and new fans that LRR has been acquiring and will continue to acquire through the Escapist are what is giving them the opportunity to do their work, get paid, and create more content than ever before.
STOP THAT RIGHT FUCKING NOW. You do NOT speak for ANYONE beyond yourself;

Did you even read my post? I don't care about the cost, I just refuse to give my money to the Escapist, because they've done nothing to deserve it.
And we are
the real LRR fans.
your arguments are the most specious and offensive tripe that has ever gone on to KILL internet communities, and founded on a misplaced sense of entitlement.
Remember, forums cna DIE OFF because one group of people consider themselves 'better' than the rest, be it by greater participation, or seniority, or whatever. It's stupid, adolescent drivel, and I'll be DAMNED if I stand by while the poison 'clique' seed takes root HERE.
Start using "I" or I'm gonna start REPORTING your bullshit in trying to put venomous lies in MY MOUTH.

Ah, so you're not only presuming to speak for all of us
- particularly those of us who have been active fans and participants for LONGER than your two years - but also telepathically able to divine what everyone else
thinks and feels.
Never mind that some 'Escapees' HAVE come over and joined LRR-forums, and become part of this community. That disagrees with your assertion and should be disregarded, obviously.
Finally, is your name Graham, or Paul, or Kathleen, or Morgan, or Bill, Matt, James, Jer, Tally, Tim, Ben, Alex, Nate, etc. etc. etc.?
No? THEN YOU DON'T GET TO DICTATE WHETHER PEOPLE DESERVE OR DON'T DESERVE ANYTHING RELATED TO LOADING READY RUN
; you are not
LRR, you're a FAN.
Let me make this clear: you (and all the rest of us
that don't have "LRR Crew" underneath our names) are GUESTS
here. Nothing more. We have no more power than the good graces that the crew deigns to us by listening to our suggestions/pleas/requests.
So please stop acting like you LITERALLY own ANYTHING here.
