I was a little disappointed with the tone the article took in the end, though.

Um, it's VICE magazine. That's kinda they steez. Pretty much sums up the whole CW ambiance in a way.

I really wish they had at least stated that most everything is hand made by the members and that it is volunteer based. It may be appropriate for the magazine it was in but it missed a whole lot of who we are and what we do. What they wrote was not incorrect, but they omitted a huge part of our culture and did us a disservice overall. It also did end on a really negative note that was not appreciated.

Well considering it was an opinion piece and not an awareness article, and considering it came from VICE, who can tend to rip **** apart, its a good article.

Overall I believe the article was positive for our image, loosely defining us as a sadomasochist anti-larp. I'm ok with that.

Personally I thought the article was great. Maybe I'm crazy, but I don't think it came off as negative in the end at all ...then again, i am biased because I personally know the author and know that he had an awesome time at Chaos.
