If you don't reply to this post you will die in your sleep tonight.
I am just pulling my reclining chair close to the screen, I have my popcorn ready and a cold soda.
Let the fight begins!!!!!

Orr is annoying and just a big tag-fest. Any non-Plinx quests worth doing are bugged, and I loathe having to log in. Tomorrow when I do my daily I'll have finally saved up enough bloodstone shards for my gift of mastery! Woot!
I am bokiz's boy toy. He is rough. =(

I suppose if he had followed it up with "brought to you by a naughty kitten" or something like that people would have just laughed and moved on.
Okay, on the topic of Bokiz post...while I didn't personally see anything but a joke in it, I also know the poster and follow him quite regularly, so I read the post in the spirit I assumed it was intended.
The problems with internet communication are myriad. No tone of voice, no facial inflection, people don't always remember other people's posts and some people might be offended by that sort of thing. They're not wrong to be offended, just as Bokiz wasn't wrong to make a joke.
Now, because people did report the post, the mods have to say something and we did, but it doesn't have to be a huge deal. Bokiz has already said he'll refrain from doing that again. Case-closed as far as I'm concerned.
The bottom line is that there's a line between what's permissible and not and what's good taste and not, but those lines vary vastly from individual to individual, so in a community setting, you should be trying to give the benefit of the doubt both ways.
Someone making a joke should be seen as making a joke and someone who gets offended shouldn't be dismissed, because their line is different from others.
So let's draw a line under this and get back on topic, please.
