that words can hurt people too. That so many people don't consider the effects of what they say to others over the internet. That cyberbullying has led others to commit the unthinkable. Hell, even death threats online have actually turned out to be sometimes real. That professional hardworking people will have a zero tolerance for online harrassment/threats or temper tantrums.

Seriously, it's 2016 and it's unbelievable to think that so many adults still disrespect others in the most disgusting,vile, impolite manner. Who in the right mind thinks that threatening to fire someone or blaming something on one person in the most cruel way possible is acceptable?

Call me an SJW or whatever you want but this type of behavior is undoubtedly childish. Also, this is not even about being politically or socially correct. It's about standing up for others and going against the very bullies that think they can do anything they want just because the internet is an anonymous place.

People were polite and they got stepped on and ignored repeatedly.
That's not an excuse for harassment of our employees, or an excuse to call for riots in the name of firing folks here.

For every complaint here on the forum, there is a player (on the forums, on social media, in game, or otherwise) who finds the state of things positive and more than acceptable. We have to take these things into perspective and weigh both sides of the conversation. We are willing to listen to constructive feedback about the changes that are being implemented, but I will not allow threads and posts that are targeting our players or employees.

It's fine to be angry, passionate, and invested in your character and class, but harassing players who disagree with you, or harassing our employees who are working tirelessly to create an experience we can all enjoy is absolutely not acceptable on these forums.


Thanks to the OP and others here for your support.
