From someone who has and is still suffering from alot of mental illness, the fact you guys are labeling him "sick and mentally unstable" is hurtful and damaging fyi..
Also for all we know someone could of put gassoline on his lawn, but he is misplacing the blame on a wc2 player, maybe it was some dumb local teenagers doing stupid sh1t for a laugh burning everyones lawns in the neigbourhood..
and if he is suffering delluisons muting him from the forums isnt going to help him, the delluisons will take place in some other aspect of his life. Muting him is purly selfish intentions imo.
Thanks for all the work you done for warcraft 2 burnt, just so you know if your reading this. None of this stuff lately has changed my respect or appreationsation for you and all the work you done for wc2 buddy.
I see what you're saying about mental health and I don't know the exact right way to approach it, but Burnt is talking about clear delusions: War2ers putting gasoline on his lawn, God intervening to tell him he'll find out what happened in some game he played, and when I use the words "sick" and "ill" what I'm trying to do is to communicate to Burnt in a clear, direct way that these are delusions, that he's not doing well, and that he needs to get help. I feel that letting him keep posting here will just encourage him to dig deeper and deeper into these same delusions.
I don't think just muting him is going to help him get better, you're right about that, but the only people that can help him get better are the ones he has around him in real life... He needs real treatment, and letting him post here not only isn't going to help him, it is just going to make him into more of a spectacle, of people coming and looking to see the weird stuff Burnt is saying, poking him a bit to get a reaction, then getting mad at him because he won't listen to reason, and so on...
I'm not set in stone on him being muted, and was fine to see him return once when the mute automatically wore off... and this mute will wear off too. I don't want to be like "out of sight, out of mind" after he more than anyone else built this community... but as long as he's posting about being imbued with the spirit of Tupac by praying for Van, I mean, it just doesn't seem appropriate to let him keep doing this.
