MakOne thing I've noticed is some (definitely some, not even a lot or a majority) of the people in these high up community positions hold this community and the game in contempt and act like massive baby power trippers.
These people don't play the game, haven't played it in years, and hold nothing but hatred for the average member of their community. I acknowledge that as an admin/leader/organiser you are going to deal with a lot of shit...Why put yourself in a position of power or authority if you aren't acting to serve the community?
That's something I have never understood. So many people who take lead of organizing events resent this community yet still continue to do so. Beyond that, they believe they're immune from doing anything wrong. I'm sure others would step up if they left. This game and community aren't going anywhere, and that's no thanks to them. If they really resent this community so much either let it fester and die or show some people who actually care the ropes and pass the baton. That being said there are still a lot of people who love this community that work hard and do good for all of us and to those people I say, thank you. And even to those who are bitter today, I'm sure the community thanks you for all you have done past present and future. Just lighten up a little bit.
edit: I would agree with 5unny to say I may be exaggerating when I say "many people" but I still definitely believe there are some stuck in the past that resent present day TF2.
