Too much of it and you lost a lot of creativity. i'm sure this could use more, but i just can't think of anything right now.. i wrote a good poem about authority here, though (different mud, same concept: http://www.purerave.com/-shade/tfc/notes/authority.htm

-laugh- You've gone from praising the imms for their liberal attitudes to castigating them for being authoritarian? Well, jeez. Did you ever think that just -maybe- the imm's attitude towards you changed for a reason? Or are you just completely oblivious?

Ofcourse. It seems ive become too much for even their liberal standards.

Either way you answer that question, it wont benefit you :-p. you and others have been expressing your contempt for me for a long time now. nothing was mentioned of that as far as i can see and i think thats fine- after all, i express my contempt for some of the actions you guys do too, he he :-p. Reactions one receives depends on 2 things- (1) ones own method of thinking (2) the methods of thinking of the people reacting. Certainly, most players are exiled for things that theyve done. That doesnt mean, however, that what theyve done is wrong. The whole idea of lynch mobbing is barbaric- the u.s. is ruled by a democracy, but lynching is still illegal because the populace, in its saner moments, realized that lynching is more negative then positive most of the time (there are, ofcourse, lynches that border or are revolutions.. thats something else :-p).
