There's a huge difference between lurking and trolling. Hell, they are almost diametrically opposed, as almost by definition one needs to post to troll, and lurking is defined as following topics without posting.
I don't participate much because I never joined the empire, despite several invitations. And I don't play ZYW games, so most of the conversation doesn't really interest me. That doesn't mean none of it ever will.
So just in case you are reading we need to watch what topics we discuss? You happened into our discussion. It was your fault not ours. We should not have to quell a topic for the fear others may not want to know about it.
The fact that you beleive we should have proves how insignificant you are.
@KP not necassary in your opinion maybe, but justified in mine.
Fast Eddie, you were the victim of a situation out of your control. You just made a bad call and went about things the wrong way. Best as i can tell that situation was resolved with little harm done.
For the Record, i act for me, no one else. My comments are mine and not the ToE's. The ToE will treat others as they themselves are treated.
Anyway, i hate folks acting in a manner that i do not like in my empire thread so i will take my leave of the Kzin.
