If you don't like the GM of the guild, no one is making you stay. Same with a job--no one forces you to stay someplace that you don't want to be.It sounds like the submitter is QQing because he's not getting his way (GM position mebbe?)--whatever that might be.If you hate it so much, then leave. If other people agree with you, then they'll follow. I don't have much sympathy for people like the submitter--I ran a guild that became a major time sink. But I didn't complain until near the end, when I decided to take 3 days off from raiding (oh noes!). After having raided 4 nights a week for 6+ months with that group, only taking 1 night off because of a migraine, I thought that I had deserved a break. I scheduled my life around our agreed upon raid schedule--because if the GM's a raider, then the GM should be on for the raids. After running non-stop, I needed a couple days to get some time alone with my family, my husband, my house, and my job. Because I took a couple days off (along with my husband, who was one of our healers), I "didn't have the best interests of the guild in mind." The end result was a Coup d'etat and a reform guild that fell apart in less than a month.Your GM has probably been through hell and back to keep you raiding. Cry me a farking river. When you're footing the bills for Vent, Forums, Guild Websites, and whatever else, then you can QQ. But when I start getting asked to make my money be used to create spaces to discuss other games that I don't give a crap about, then yea, I'm gonna get pissed. If you want to be able to talk about AoC/WAR/whatever, do it on your own damn dime./rant over
