From my perspective the description of the situation behind your ban is very accurate. You joined the channel to proceed to complain to me, in direct messages, essentially shit talking UO. You were arrogant in suggesting problem with the Finnish event was purely us and nothing else. The insistence of that personally made me annoyed, even more so that you were doing it to me personally instead of everyone else. I mistakenly told you, "You're preaching to the choir," in voice chat rather then continuing a DM conversation with you. I mistakenly thought that idiom roughly meant, 'You're talking to the wrong guy, man.' You responded in anger to me because I dared to say something related to our DM publicly, and you told me to "Shut the fuck up," because I was allegedly talking over someone. Which I wasn't. Consistent to what VPope posted in this thread, you proceeded to insult me by saying, "What the fuck were you thinking?" followed by a, "Do you even know who you are talking to?" Annoyed, I told you "No," and that, "I don't care." That's when I closed the conversation and called you out for being sordid. I told you if you were going to talk shit, do it to everyone publicly, if not, then stop talking. -- Now about your excuse. No, you did not express wishes of privacy before the discussion itself. Even if you did, I would personally feel that I am not morally obligated to abide by that. Why? Because the notion of shit talking a community to someone behind everyone else's back, which that someone is apart of, saying, "You're the problem," to that community that has done nothing but collaborate with your own in good faith IN THEIR TEAMSPEAK is MORALLY REPREHENSIBLE. So, yes, no wonder people are going to be aggressive towards you. Then you double down to make an extremely arrogant and disrespectful argument from authority to VPope. I personally do not believe your perpetual state of drunkenness and consequently complete lack of respect and abundance of arrogance has a place here. -- P.S - You're not sorry due to the fact you're basically making the same argument from authority to get unbanned. Saying 'it's an argument' in this case wouldn't be very accurate in all fairness, because it's a sleazy ultimatum.
