    What tremendous leadership.
    I don't think calling people out for hypocrisy = justifying anything.

    It's not hypocrisy when it's at that level.

    What you're comparing your detractors' behavior to - this would be similar to you losing your **** when your mom asks you to take out the trash but shrugging it off when your brother gets asked to plow a 40 acre field by hand.

    I understand your analogy means to suggest that the things I am comparing are not at the same level, but I do not agree that there are varying levels here. We're talking about insults on an online forum, and in the case of LB specifically, insinuating criminal actions and spousal infidelity is not exactly lower than asking if someone's spouse died and left them money IMO.

    Nevermind that I was not even comparing anyone's words to IB's. I was saying that it is hypocritical for LB to call someone classless when he has acted classless, and for Cis to say people shouldn't resort to childish name-calling when she has done the exact same thing.

    You're deflecting. More importantly you guys said you were going to do illegal things in your Skype room. I made it public. You've gone off on a multi week semantics tantrum because you claim you didn't actually do it.

    I even tried to help you clear your name by asking for time stamped proof that you discouraged it. You refused. While you might deny it now your logs have been passed around and so your US1 adventures will be forever remembered for month long semantics tantrums, personal attacks, lying, multiing, failed Ops, threats of IP tracking, MultiHunter deletions, fat shaming, shaming the poor, shut in jokes, cat lady jokes, dead spouse jokes, catapulting members, and both defending and enabling online harassment.

    You might actually be the worst person currently active on the forums.

    I don't remember the spousal infidelity comment; could you PM or IGM it to me? (I don't want to rehash publicly whatever *****torm that was). Course if you IGM it to me I might not get around to it for a few days weeks since apparently I do a crappy job keeping up with those.

    As for the "criminal" actions. You guys discussed doing that in your Skype and LB found out about it. At that point it doesn't really matter much if it was a "joke" or not. In a world filled with Adblock, Tor, NoScript, net neutrality debates, hacking, ransomware, Edward Snowden etc etc etc, that's definitely not one of those things that's ok to joke about. Hopefully you guys have learned from that experience, but that's not really anyone's fault or responsibility but yours. Take ownership for your screwups and move on.

    Same way with someone's spouse dying. That's just one of those things that you don't joke about. Generally speaking people that have been married for any reasonable length of time don't look forward to having to go through that phase of life. Most people actively avoid thinking about their spouse dying. I'm going to assert (but refuse to argue; I'm tired of trying to explain basic interpersonal skills to you people) that someone's spouse dying or getting killed is a way more traumatic life incident than catching them in bed with someone else.

    As for dead spouse jokes. If there was a website that gave a checklist of every dumb cliche insult on the Internets, and then went through IB's post, you could pretty much go right down the line. At least LB tries to be somewhat clever about his poo flinging.

    But that's not even the main point I was trying to make, which is that you defended him on the forums and then posted later saying that you chastised him in private. You can't come on here as a member of leadership and say one thing publicly and do another incompatible thing privately. That's the very definition of hypocrisy, the way I see it, and quite frankly the way the Bible sees it too.

    I know I'm walking the fine line of yet another semantics *****torm and you lawyering your way through more poo, but that's kind of what the whole "tea/kettle" thing implies. It basically sends the message of, "What you did was worse" since the entire freaking metaphor is a comparison between two kitchenware objects.

    So then by this logic, you have no right at all, whatsoever, to call anyone out on any of the above.. Except that you have many times employed a "I can do it but you can't" mantra..

    Yeah, to call that "infidelity" is pretty weak. When you use that word it makes people think of sleeping around or hoing it up. But maybe that was the intended thought.

    Yes it is. Infidelity was not how it was intended and regardless I apologized. The offended party forgave me and yet Luisss persists on the topic. It's led me to wonder if it was ever about the joke at all or something else... something left unresolved in our dear snowflake.

    That won't help your team's numbers. You're already half of BTDT`s raiding and if you exclude TiK ToK and Zapp you're what... 1/5th or less? C'mon man crack that whip!

    No offense, but I managed to build a pretty impressive account with probably more siege than 99.99% of the server without ever getting anywhere close to the top 10 in raiding.

    If anyone is gonna crack the whip on anyone, ask how my little account managed to do that while many that raided much more than me with way more villages couldn't keep up.

    No offense taken. I'm a notoriously lazy and awful raider and sim up my Hamvils. Some people focus on population and rank while others focus on troops. It's just the game.

    There is this wonderful mechanism by which I can communicate with my players outside of the forum in a private way. There's no need for me to say "we" won't do it again, as I had no hand in what he wrote, but I have expressed to him that dead spouse jokes are not right and that forum etiquette usually says that family members are off limits. I also did not see his post until this morning, as I do not check this forum every hour on the hour believe it or not.



    There's no semantics here. You said if I said a portion of what he said, it would have been better, ignoring that I did. We can stop there.
    Citation? (One of your favorite responses) Find ONE place where I insulted anyone in any way, shape or form like he did. Kinda like calling Jimmay out the other day, only to have him disappear. Still haven't gotten a PM with an account name. Maybe because there isn't one?

    Generally speaking, if I post something, it means I care, at least a little bit. But then, I am known to be strange.

    Even if it is just a lie, like this looks to be... the misdirection means something.

    I've been assuming it's just some random insult, like calling someone a snowflake if they object to anything another person says or thinks...

    But then, I don't likr poptarts (way too sugary and fake tasting, they would make me sick when I was a kid, it was a mystery to me why all the other kids thought they were amazing) so I may be reading something that's not there.

    Like calling certain trolls snowflakes because they believe they're special and unique while they're also terribly fragile and prone to melting away when things heat up.

    Not me.

    The issue in question was the amount of siege I claimed to lose, although I did not post a specific number. Kurtz is obviously jealous because I had a bigger hammer, which probably isn't the only time in his life that he's been on the short end.
