Re: Kill MC Alumni? - 01/07/08 01:05 PM

Well, it still says 'beta' in there, so IMHO it all still falls under the category of 'beta testing', therefore no-one should be banned or correctioned for that behavior. Honestly. Oh and since it still is a beta forum, why won't we still give it another chance when it is out of the beta-stage...yeah, right, sure...it's like kicking a dead horse already there in reality. <br><br>

Even if the software was improved the attitude will remain the same. It's a no go zone for me.<br><br>

Given the way the place felt, I knew it wouldn't last (from the communities perspective). Knowing the thread/what I said would not get be banned at MC just goes to show the iron fist MW moderation is.<br><br>Play World of Warcraft, for free!

Re: Kill MC Alumni? - 01/07/08 11:05 PM

You are right, it's ridiculous. I kinda almost understand their point but that one condescending post there by Jason Snell a few days ago was the final. Come on, anyone else find his attitude ridiculous and cry-babyist? Besides, most of us called this attitude in one way or another via our skepticism already before the MCA was officially opened. Yeah, moderation...just not in moderation, at least not in our terms.<br><br>
