That’s a pretty inflammatory and insulting statement to make toward other players/forum members; if I can be blunt, that kind of toxicity is uncalled for, and not conducive for someone who believes they can “fix” a perceived problem with multiple threads showing off a server in the past.
You’re not going to win people over by insulting them or trying to force them to mold to your ideals.
...As a neutral party, that logic is bad. While it's true that it was "aggressive", I have in the past 24 hours seen 'certain' people post way more toxic things at other people, usually at Zaro. And to pretend the forum mods aren't a little over-correct with Zarozian is a little naive. You can call him a drama baiter, or passive aggressive, but toxic is straight bias when half his topics are met with the same few people starting the issue. Either point the finger at all parties, or point em at none.
Personally, I'd prefer it if they were pointed at none. These forums used to be way more fun, and even back then there was Zaro and his haters and their rivalries...and that's perfectly fine to a degree. Players come to the forums less for help and more for a community to sink into, and like him or not you can already tell the forum postings are more active now that he's back. People keep throwing around the "community" being dead or reviving it, but from where I'm sitting the community is not far from where it used to be...it just needs room to breathe. Some drama, some friendships, some silly topics about what you just ate being more active. The community pieces haven't changed all that much, the forums themselves are far less personalized and less fun than they used to be.
