Okay, so, this has been bugging me. I’ve read this a few times, and I wish this would be dropped.
Lac, we’ve been friends a while. But Zanpyr’s also my friend, and I tried to stay out of it. I just.. want to show you something, and I hope you take a step back and be a bit more organized.
"I never have and never will harass Zandrae." It doesn’t matter if it’s in-game or not, it’s still harassment. Like what you’re doing right now.
“I can and will call out or voice my opinion when I see disgusting and reprehensible behavior.” What you’re doing right now, and to the post that sparked all of this, is disgusting and reprehensible. You showed a screenshot without the rest of the context, and you refuse to have what actually happened shown. If you were abused in a horrible fashion by this individual, I can wholeheartedly understand not wanting to see that.. but you haven’t been abused. You were caught.
You say you don’t want your followers to have a wall of text, so add a Read More or don’t post. Make a separate post if you can’t add a Read More. Find words concise enough and articulate enough to where it can be condensed. Length shouldn’t matter if it’s something people should be concerned about.
Now, I could have privately messaged you about this. But I don’t think that would have done any good.
Because instead of sticking to one thing, you went on about a few other people in a post and to me that’s not very organized. Not to mention you said you were going to leave Inathia and Sinsaria and the Phoenix Guard alone a while ago, but you haven’t. It’s evident in this post.
Plus, you can block tags. These tags also account for tumblr names. It’s called tumblr saviour. It’s worked for me. So if these people truly bother you, I encourage you to check it out.
So, as your friend, I encourage you to stop this hate fest. When I knew you you weren’t this kind of person. I can understand if they did something inexplicably horrible to you that you can’t get away from them. I get it. That kind of thing does change people, but immersing yourself in it still doesn’t help. But you weren’t abused, attacked, etc. by this person. It was just lack of OOC communication involving a story line you wanted to do.
It kind of hurts to see this kind of thing when the origination of this post involved you attacking them on a post that involved getting a message out to save people from someone that has attacked and hurt people on two servers.
You probably should of private messaged it as it tends to appear like yet another “Tumblr Name/Shame” which is Zan’s word, not my own.
Now if I was actually harassing her that would be one thing. But all I’ve written is “Your going too far by posting her data”. Much like it was going too far to post MY data on the WoW Forums. There’s no hate-fest as you call it on my part. A deep sense of pity for all parties and a strong loathing of all brands of cyber-harassment, but not hate.
Also I think it would be fair to say you do not have the full situation Dylibird or the mails / screenshots I do. I posted the least defamatory for a reason.
I’ve been called Shitlord and tons of other classy names due to one thing. Having a different opinion.
Add to that these anon-attacks. Because of the specific wording including gratuitous use of shitlord and bitchassedness, I fairly draw a correlation I think.
Regarding Phoenix Guard, I don’t even know why your bringing it up, but it’s clear you must not of read my post at all. If you had then you’d know that what I said was that I no longer was completely sure Ina and Sin were the parties who have been harassing me. In short newsflash "I MIGHT be wrong. Not sure yet but I’ll assume so until evidence says otherwise." It’s called giving the benefit of the doubt.
I’d rather say “Hey I might be wrong here folks” when something comes up to suggest that, than stick to my guns to the bitter end. Did you not see that I decided to disband the level 1 guild I’ve had for some time?
Making that decision wasn’t done out of a desire to continue my quarrel with the Phoenix Guard or it’s members. Some of their members are in fact my friends, and I am not going to see people caught in the middle.
What it was, was me making damned sure I was done with it on all levels, and what acts I could to show good faith on my part. No idea if it’ll be returned, but that’s how I work.
I’m sorry your missing my point, because I am convinced your a good person. Maybe Zanpyr is too. I can’t say. I’ve only met her four times total, and our Skype discourse left me with a strong “avoid” desire.
If it pleases you, I can drop you from follow so that I need not deal with this further and you won’t have to see what I write in turn. I don’t think I’m out of order for having my views, nor do I think your wrong for feeling this way. For my part my solution is to ignore Zandrae. That’s Blizzard’s proscribed solution. I do think however that reblogging things and saying the above though I think is adding gas to a fire when everyone should take a deep breath and walk away.
It’s adding gas to a flame that you keep relighting.
And mentioning Inathia, Sinsaria, or the Phoenix Guard in ANY way, isn’t dropping it. You’re just trying to correct a wrong you did months ago. Does it make you a paragon for it? No.
