I did resign from the MT yesterday but after much discussion with the other MT members I was persuaded to stay.
About Fks' poor selection of profile picture, a pm was sent to him by the MT asking him to remove it almost immediately after Ouwesok pointed it out, so I can assure you that although Napoleon 1er did make a joke about it the MT did not take this insult to you lightly.
"When I said the MT did not take it lightly I was refering to Fks putting a photo of you on his profile, and I meant it; the MT soon sent a pm to him asking him to remove it - sorry if we misunderstood and you don't have a problem with your photo being used by another player, our mistake (personally I would be furious if it was my photo but of course not all people feel the same way about it, sorry for our erroneous rushed judgement).
Old Sock's post was under discussion and no official decision had been reached by the MT; at this time Napoleon 1er made his joke. "
First you say it refers to the insult thrown out by OuweSok, now you say it is about FKs action? Can you make it clear to which part you are referring?
"As for Old Sock's post, the MT discussed how to deal with it at a pm but since you said that you didn't really have a problem with it (even laughed at it) we decided to do nothing about it."
Thanks for clearing that up. It might be because I am made of thick skin and know how the internet works; get out of the kitchen if you can't stand the heat. Of course I'm going to laugh at it, I mean, its just banter, but one would expect this to also work the other way around. All this does not change the fact that the post made was in clear violation of the rules. Which is, I believe, MT's department to handle, report or not.
By not taking any action, you are basically giving a license to dish out insults (again, fine by me), but I do trust that this applies for everyone
