a vendetta to get who? van or burnt?
I've never had any reason to go after burnt. I was extremely disappointed in the things he was saying 2 months ago with his conspiracy. I probably did not handle that situation properly.. But part of the reason I was responding to what he was saying the way that i was responding was because I wasnt entirely sure if he was being serious or just doing a massive troll. So i did respond with some trolling.. trying to analyze how he responded.. just trying to figure out if he was serious or not.
I know that you, burnt, and van are close. I get that. But the entire community (even you to a degree) seem to acknowledge that he has some problems. I sympathize with those problems, but when those problems start negatively affecting multiple users in the community it becomes our problems. I have repeatedly said, and will continue to say that the BEST possible outcome in this situation is that we all find a way to get along on the server.. or atleast tolerable towards eachother.
As a community we decided that the type of behavior van displays has been unacceptable. Its not helping the community. It's hurting it. There is solid proof of that (server USA was created because of his behavior) .. He's your friend. I understand that. But we literally have an obligation to the community as a whole over how we feel about 1 individual.. even if that individual is a good personal friend.
if you think i'm making that statement just because it sounds good.. you're wrong.
As admin years ago, I had a clan mate ali[as]. He was my best friend on the server. Loved the guy... But the rules of the clan and the server were "if you get asked SS.. you take it. You post it."
ali had previously not taken a ss once.. and he was warned by me as both an admin, and a clan leader that it can't happen again. It did happen again. My best friend at the time on the server refused a 2nd ss. As admin and clan leader i had no choice. I had to implement a ban on him, and i removed him from the clan. My best fukin friend. He quit playing after that. He's logged on once or twice since then but has never talked to me again.
I put the rules/best interest of the community BEFORE my friendship with another player.. it wasnt easy. I hated it. But i did it.. because it was the right thing to do.
You and Burnt are completely ignoring the wishes of the community... ignoring the process we took to come to an understanding as a community.. And you are putting your feelings about van first, at the expense of the rest of the community.
