    I'd seriously like to know W.T.F. I said now. Assholes.

    I was banned from the forums shortly before I shut down the EQ2Wire news site. One of the many contributing factors.

    How did you even find out why you were banned? I created another forum account to ask, and instead of telling me they just banned that one as well and blocked my IP address.

    Why do I feel like they will be happier when the forums are dead? Shouldn't be long now anyway.

    I'm guessing it was for making the pumpkin thread, I'm quite sure I was being too "negative" by saying it was stupid.

    Negative feedback when it's justified, and it is, is better than no feedback at all. When people stop offering their feedback on EQ2 then it's time for them to worry because it means people have lost interest.

    I don't get why you'd be banned. You're never rude on forums.

    This did make my day when I saw it on forums. Worth the ban.

    I keep waiting for them to use an excuse like that to ban me for stuff I'm saying here.

    Funny thing was, back in the day when eq2 flames was popular, the devs spent more time reading that forum than the official one.

    The people posting on the forums have no impact on the success or failure of the game.

    The people managing and developing the game are responsible for that.

    Those same folks should look in the mirror if they want to find someone to blame, instead of taking it out on the forum posters.

    Wait which forum guideline violations were "acceptable"? Inquiring minds want to know. o_O

    It was telling Siggy to jump. That post has been removed.

    Siggy if you read this, thanks for getting me banned, rest assured that you had better be on your best behavior from now on at the official forums. Because once I'm back, every-time you are snarky, mean-spirited or condescending to someone else in your posts (a trend most of us have noticed lately) I'm going to report it.

    And please don't get her banned. The nonsense advice she spits out is the best entertainment on the forums.

    Top notch lols.

    Her advice is just fine, her tone at times is not. And I have nothing against her bad advice (as long as someone chimes in to correct her) but I certainly do have something against how she sometimes treats other posters. And I'm no longer willing to let it slide.

    I had to consider how I wanted to reply to this, because I think it's important. I also don't want to come off as abrupt or antagonistic.

    I see her post a lot in player support as well as the general forums, while sometimes her advice is standard stuff and helpful, very nearly all of the time she blames the consumer for well known (and documented) problems with the product, often in a condescending tone - which turns dismissive when she's challenged.

    The way she deals with other players does far more damage than her hit and miss advice. She isn't the only one that does it, but she's one of the most active. As the game continues to shrink, I think it's more important than ever for those that have ditched the rose colored glasses to speak up about actuality.

    Even stubborn 'trolls' like me! ;)

    Be firm, be polite. Best of luck!

    Fantastic reply and exactly what I find disconcerting about much of Sigradrifa's advice.

    A condescending pain in the ass. Yep, that sums it up. #just sayin'

    Yep, and my "her advice is just fine" was directly in response to Fuli, and not a comment on its quality.
