A whole lot of OT bashing in the forums.. Everyone see's the negative, how about some positive.. if the OT server wasn't around I would have dropped FF a long time ago, so despite how people claim it hurts the FF community it also helps the community. Sure it's not for everyone but it's perfect for those of us who just do not want to hear the language, obscene sprays, etc..

I did league play back in 99 - 00 and I tried it about a year ago in FF, just not my thing anymore, I still like the competitiveness, but I dislike the players attitudes. However, I still love the game so the OT server gives me a place to go and get my FF fix for the night. Keep it up Scuzzy.

I play on O-T server and the only people I've seen banned RICHLY deserved to be.
I've accidentally slipped the occasional Freddy Uncle Charlie Katie on there yet I've not been crucified.

I'm sure OT and its members have done some good for the community, but that doesn't negate the bad. It's like saying "Hey, Hitler killed 6 million jews, but he did give money to charity!"

I've yet to see someone say they would not play FF anymore because they got banned for breaking OT's rules. If it was the only server available then sure but at any given time there is at least one other active server they could play in. People really need to grow up, if you break OT's rules you'll get banned, the player is at fault not the clan, it's called taking responsibility for your actions. If it's that big of a deal appeal your ban and I would imagine they would allow you to play on their server again. More and more people are just looking for reasons to complain and fingers to point elsewhere except at themselves, it's childish reasoning like this that actually destroys a community.

LOL nice link

For example, there is a tradition in many newsgroups and other Internet discussion forums that once such a comparison is made, the thread is finished and whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically "lost" whatever debate was in progress.

Godwin's Law states that eventually someone will compare x to Nazis, Nazi Germany, or Hitler. Your point is? For one, I never made a comparison of character or person or whatever, but a comparison of thought. Think about it. Godwin's Law is useless and is in itself a red herring argument, which is a logical fallacy. It proves nothing and means nothing. It was nothing more than an attempt by a middle-aged Mike Godwin to have his name stamped on the internet. Good idea, Mike. Not. Bridget's Law of the Interwebs states that you're upset and need to think harder next time.

By the way, my signature is a comparison, though not literal. \/
