Just a reminder, this isn't an official statement on the situation. My word is as useless as a dead dog. Please do not take this as what the server actually thinks as a whole, I'm trying to use what power I have to unite the server again.
As most of you have seen lately, there has been an increase of "disrespect" on the server. Although I haven't seen it personally, I feel like something should be said about it. In my eyes I feel like everyone has overreacted, like usual, about this disrespect shit. Yes of course, we need to make the server a friendly and fun environment for everyone. However we cannot just rip freedom of speech and expression from our playerbase.
We also cannot change the thoughts and opinions that our players have about each other, other servers, etc. But, when it goes over a certain point, such as doxxing, ddosing, nonstop harassment, then I feel we're (at least I am) obligated to step in. I feel like we should not have to step into each and everyone's minute quarrels just because their feelings are hurt.
There are somethings that us higher-ups will help with, but whatever beef you have with whoever is not really our concern. Now I'm not saying it's open season for you all to be assholes with each other, I still feel like you should all have respect for each other.
Also, if you feel like my stance is different because I've never been disrespected or made fun of or any kind of bullshit like that, I am literally gay. I have experienced enough of that shit and I let it slide like water off a ducks back, because I don't care. From random people to even my own family I let it go, because I know that their words don't matter.
I really shouldn't have to make this kind of post, but apparently I do. Just treat others the way you want to be treated and the least all of you can do is be nice to each other.
Tl;dr: be nice to each other, we don't care about the beef you have with other people unless it's severe
