As much as I'd love to take credit for that one, wasn't me. I was kicked off the application boards after about a month when they started realizing that I rejected 99% of them with very little good reason. A dick I may be, but I've never said I would withhold an application or any other false bullshit along the lines of threatening with fake in-guild rank.

The way I see it: if a person wants to think I'm high up, I won't say I'm not, but if they know I'm just a member who's been around for a while then there's no point in fabricating truth. Most people are formally instructed to ignore me and my wicked cant from the start, and that I am just a regular member.

As much as I'd love to jump into a heated debate about all the various real reasons the guild has virtually fallen apart, I don't really give a shit about anything Sirum says. If you still think I'm the only reason this guild is falling apart you need to get your head out of your own ass for a little while. As is, I'll be just as happy to shoulder all the blame in order to sate "the mighty one's" need to point fingers. After all, The God Sirum must be appeased!!!

Grow up a little, hm?

Hate to say it's true. It's not Kal's fault (Though that incredibly vehement reply was definitely uncalled for, and I wonder who needs to 'grow up' here) and it's not any one person's fault, but yeah, some of us were rude to the newbies at times. I know I was. Razz

I got away with arresting someone? Hah, that's awesome. Cool I'm not sure how I treated her OOCly but I believe I recall, apart from that episode entirely, that I disliked her. But then I dislike every newbie to some degree, so what else is new.

Perhaps I overreacted with my first reply in light of your response, Si. I'm sure you all know me well enough to know that I see my name dropped in an accusatory statement and I switch to auto-defense mode. Apologies appropriated.

In any case, it's no mystery to me that newbies were treated poorly. As everyone knows I'm a longtime perpetrator of poor newbie relations. I've crafted it to a fine art. An art, as everyone should know by now, is to be ignored and waved off when necessary. See also: always.
