Me read a log given to me today, and it got me REALLY confused
It was about a certian player, who because of this incident is
now never going to return. This player was known to all and disliked
by most, so most of you will be saying 'no big loss'. But that's
beside the point. The point is WHY he left. From MY reading
and re-reading of this log, the person in consern was annoyed because
an imm gave some missinformation (for whatever reason is unknown to me
perhaps the imm payed attention to chat after the argument started) from
what his friend, and one of the people who started the argument told him.
When questioning the imm conserned, the imm proceeded to remove all access
to his channels. Afterwards a few abusive comments were flung in the
imm conserneds direction (quite understandable when punished for not
doing anything). Finally the player tells the imm 'I did nothing wrong'
to which the imm replies 'your right you didn't'. Shortly after the log ends.
After a brief talking with the conserned player, he informed me that he
spoke to a couple of the other immortals online at the time, pointing out
that he did nothing wrong and that the imm that warned him also agreed
but nothing came of it.
Of the original argument, I don't know who was right, and I don't really
care. But what I DO care about is the immortal staff abusing their power.
Punishing someone when they did NOTHING wrong, and the immortal that
warned him ADMITING that obviously proves an abuse of power. What I would
like to know is WHY the player in consern was warned and punished when
they didn't do ANYTHING against the rules. If someone could enlighten me
as to why he was, that would be very much appriceated. But from reading
the log, (which shows a considerable amount before the event, and again
afterwards) I can only assume that the imm was in the wrong and for that
From: would like to see at least some explanation, if not some action
taken against them.
PS if you want to see the log, mudmail me with your email and I'll
send it at my next oppurtunity.

First: the log shows only the last thing that happened between
the mortal and myself. You have no historical context to even
come close to understanding the encounter. I won't discuss
anyone's administrative history with the public so you won't
ever have all of the facts. I'd ask you to trust me that this
person was not entirely mistreated but I don't believe that
anyone would care to do that.
Second: Had this person not decided to use a personal discussion
between himself and me as a way to reinstigate an argument
on chat that was finally coming under control he wouldn't have
meet with what you term "abuse."
Third: Later with another alt he proved me not entirely wrong
with an explosion of profanity on chat. he may have been rightfully
upset that he lost his channels unfairly, but the abuse he
redirected at the imm staff in that explosion was unnecessary
and makes it very hard to explain teh situation to him in any way.

Hmm, all I gotta say is, its none of your business. You didn't
even see the entire thing or witness any of it. All you have is
an incomplete log, which may or may not be accurate. All this is

know if I was or wasn't? Last I checked no one kept tabs on me...
