I am a gamer... 

We are all gamers...

But what I am not is someone who sees a need for self-appointed bodies claiming to be national or world federations, setting themselves up as the spokesmen for our hobby.

Almost as bad are the types of groups who then whore themselves out to be no more than a front for a given company.

But worst of all are the gamers who wish to give themselves a sense of importance by carrying a membership card for this kind of body in the delusion that it makes them in some way superior.

Save the money and use it to buy more toys, join a local club if you must, but stop giving a few nobody's an excuse to call themselves somebody.

It's a sad day when a collection of people who traditionally revel in the freedom of thought and independence of action roll over and become clone thinkers, sneering at the very people they were themselves until they paid an extortionate annual subscription to feel part of something.

And as for magazines that are no more than a company organ, dumbing down the hobby whilst pushing bad rules, questionable history and their own 'next big thing', well...
