I'm not gonna go into detail about my feelings regarding porn sprays in servers here, b/c it would be way off topic.

With me, its not "the way admins run their servers" - its the way they dont run their servers. Its as if some server ops are either afraid, or do not care enough to set down guidelines.
That is their choice as server ops to do what they want with their servers. You should consider yourself lucky that you have the option of joining server's like [o-t] who cater to your specific minority (yes, your the minority in this scenario), because, the majority of people realize they are playing on a mature game and prefer it that way. Yes, there are people out there who want structure, there are also people who want chaos, people who want OvD, tk, ff, rules, no rules, skillz only, porn sprays, cussing, t bagging, the list goes on and on. You, as a user, have to be ready to deal with all of those things, OR don't and stick to servers you like and trust.

I'm not saying you can't try to impact the whole by posting stuff like this, but at some point you kinda gotta get it that you are on the internet and you can't change the world.

If the majority is looking to do all these things why bother trying to mold the game into a playstyle they won't even care about or follow?

I did not want to get off topic - the point is that when people speak out about something, they are usually wrong. Regardless of what it is, its wrong.

There seems to be a "toe the line" mentality with some of the FF community. When someone speaks out, then others try to "put them in their place" - one way or the other.

As I have said before, there are a lot of good people in the FF community. With that, I mean good as in personality, they help new players, are easy going, fun to play with,,,,.

Its the bad apples that brings the FF community down. Its the bullies, the mockers, the people that make fun of others, and those that do not respect other peoples opinions on matters.

When someone has a differing opinion, at the very least that person deserves mutual respect. They do not deserve to be mocked, made fun of,,, just because their opinion is different then others.

Thank you for your time and your attention.

Assuming you're talking about AvD and CTF, I thought that it WAS the game.

There are certain roles and responsibilities people want classes to take while playing... if someone isn't interested in following any of those ideals it's a moot point.

b/c we want this game to appeal to as many people as is possible. I don't see it as a black and white "either this or that." Rather more of a "this, and that, and that, and that, and that,and that,and that,and that,and that,and that,and that,and that,and that,and that,and that, etc."

I know you weren't..I was just saying why I wasn't gonna. Not saying you were trying to.

I agree completely, but that doesn't mean that you're going to get it. But that's the beauty of this game...there is an option for nearly every player out there. You say you stopped playing and removed your kids and whatnot and I think that is a very sad thing, but I think that's on you. Is this game full off asshats who do stupid shit, yes. Are there places that you can go where these people are non-existent and/or properly dealt with, YES.

You say you love this game and your here defending it, but you won't play b/c there are big bad people out there. So avoid them, go to the places where they can't come. OR better yet...start another place where they can't come and make it your own. A server can be as low as like 5 bucks I saw the other day...not that hard to start one up, and there is plenty of support here. In no time you're in an environment that you can tailor fit to be exactly the kind of experience you want/like.

It would be easier to read if you would separate "your" from "you're"
