I was reluctant to post this tread because I thought what I was witnessing was just something that would pass…however I can’t hold my tongue anymore.
What the hell is up with all these new SRKlive mods abusing their mod status? I mean really? Stream monster to Stream mod monster??
I grew up in the days of IRC, way back when a channel @ or moderator had a certain level of dignity. They were self respecting people, people you could look up to. You know the type, mature, confident, self respecting types.
So let me get to my point.
Omgitzandre timeout’s me everytime I’m talk to someone about how he lost a first to 5 vs Unbeatable SSFP. Literally every time. I won’t even be talking to him, but rather someone else, and next thing you know I’m timed out. Why? Because he’s salty, thats why. I mean seriously, who calls out someone to a ft5 (Unbeatable SSFP) of all people, then gets Peaceful Jay to stream it, then loses! Lmao. But that’s not even the point…the point is, any discussion of it will get you an automatic 10 minute time out.
Mike in Flames is another person that is abusing his mod status. I remember the other day I was saying something along the lines of, this player is pretty free. Man, “he sucks”, then next thing you know I’m timed out. WTF? If you can’t handle people talking about you, then you have no business being a mod. It’s like all these people you used to be able to actually talk trash about or talk to in general, all the sudden got their EGO’s pumped up, and rather than actually defend themselves, time you out just because they can.
Well here’s news to you my friends, you can’t time people out at tournaments. If someone starts clowning you cause you lost a match, there is no “mute” or “timeout” feature. You gotta handle that shit like a man.
Just my 2 cents.
