That's so last year. BOII got boring fast too. I guess I miss Specialist load-outs.

I'm on a TrialsHD Evolution kick right now. Gotta smash all my son's records now that school started up again.

In the last few months we've been extremely patient and understanding of Blaise's extremely negative behavior towards other posters, and the thinly veiled attacks on server operation. But now, within 24 hours of introducing our new staff members, you find it necessary and acceptable to attack these staff members and imply that they are playing favorites and are acting inappropriately based on the channels that they join. Well, you're done. Your behavior was already borderline unacceptable, and the fact that you find it necessary to attack those who are willing to dedicate their time and effort to support something with no compensation to themselves but the love of the activity is grossly inappropriate and immature behavior. You will not be posting here, and if you do decide to circumvent that rule, you will not be playing here.

As for the specific and patently absurd statements made in this thread, I'll address them below:
Blaise wrote:As for Mammoth,
[Mammoth[work]] (~Blazework@blaze.User.WildIRC.Net): ...
* [Mammoth[work]] #gangbang #NWO #new @#llamashop @#secondage


Is Mammoth still a member of NWO, NEW and LLamaShop, or is he just hanging out in there to leave room for speculations of favoritism?
Staff is free to join whatever channel they are invited to and desire to join. We are free to chat with others and interact in a less formal environment, and while some staff members (namely me) don't join other channels, that is not beholden to all staff members.
Blaise wrote:Perhaps a note on the main page letting people know they can find Staff in #gangbang if they have any questions, would help?
Staff members are free to join channels that are outside of the official channels, and implying that because they join those channels they should be listed as official channels (not to mention that you're suggesting that we should list a dubious channel name in an official capacity) is just plain ignorant. The fact of the matter is that staff members may also speak with others in an unofficial capacity because we are humans too, and sometimes we like to have a chat.
Blaise wrote:With your degree and experience in support, I have no doubt that you are quite capable of no longer auto-joining rooms on invite. The fact that you are immediately put in those rooms when you join IRC, makes it pretty clear from my non-degreed but experienced in support view that you are in fact, intentionally joining your "former" guild channels.
Your repeated implications that because a staff member joins a specific channel that they must have favoritism towards that group of players or guild is completely unfounded and libelous. You have absolutely zero evidence of any sort of wrongdoing, and your guilty by association ad hominem attack is without merit.
If you want to pretend like that doesn't look shady and that staff hanging out in a channel called #gangbang is somehow good for the image of the shard.....suit yourself.
I guess that the fact that Derrick is currently idling in the #gangbang channel, and has been for months is somehow a terrible image for the server:

Derrick is ~Derrick@Derrick.User.WildIRC.Net * ...
Derrick on @#secondage #gangbang @#joinuo @#secondageevents
Derrick using *.WildIRC.Net WildIRC NETWORK
Derrick is logged in as Derrick
Derrick End of /WHOIS list.

I guess the fact that Derrick has idled in #farts for long periods in the past, and that he has idled in #new for long periods as well also screams inappropriate and favoritism, right? Of course, they don't actually say that, and the fact that you're implying that they do is nothing but an underhanded attempt to attack the server as you have repeatedly done in the past. You have the entire rest of the internet to make these accusations and attack us, but you will not be doing them here.

Really? So you take the information divulged regarding the fact that one of our administrators automatically joins a channel and childishly use it to make yet another stab at them? This behavior is reprehensible, and I'll ask Mammoth to post the logs to show just how childish your behavior was.

Forum banning someone for highlighting some activity by staff seems a bit harsh, especially since no explicit accusations of wrong doing were made. Did not realize being annoying as hell constitutes an 'attack'.

But, if this is the way staff will be treating trolling then I am all for it. Crack that whip boys and polish the banhammer.

Its high time to clean up the forums.

Good decision. You should delete all his posts rather than have his salty attitude laced through all our search engine indexed forums pages, too.

Out of curiosity, did anyone PM blaise to let him know that he was agitating staff before this? The reasoning was that he had a history of it. Maybe he would stfu if he knew that he had lit your fuse a while back. This is why I liked nevermore around here. You knew he was irritated with your immediately. He even warned you a few times.

Blaise is a butthole by character. He's been that way since the beginning. I would like to think that you warned him more than once to cease his negativity.

Also...PLZ DON'T BAN ME! I swear it's my empathy that makes me do it.

There is a distinct difference between noting that a staff member is doing something, and drawing conclusions based on that activity. For example, if someone said:

Derrick is in the #new channel.

That would be highlighting some GM activity. However, if someone said:

Derrick is in the #new channel. I wonder if he might have an attitude of favoritism towards their guild, because they help newer players.

That is no longer highlighting GM activity, and implies certain conclusions about other GM actions, based on what is immediately visible.

So, when Blaise posted comments such as:
The fact that you are immediately put in those rooms when you join IRC, makes it pretty clear from my non-degreed but experienced in support view that you are in fact, intentionally joining your "former" guild channels.
and:
Technically, this thread mentioned nothing about whether or not these two gentlemen will be playing or not anymore. Of course, we'ed like to assume they aren't going to.
and:
Perhaps a note on the main page letting people know they can find Staff in #gangbang if they have any questions, would help?
and when he takes advantage of a staff member's auto-join script to post the following:
* [Mammoth[work]] #homoerotica #gangbang #NWO #new @#llamashop @#secondage
These are, by definition, attacks on the integrity of these staff members, without any proof that such failures of integrity exist. This behavior is entirely reprehensible, particularly when the claims begin literally 26 hours after these staff members have been brought on.
