A guildy who is also a face-to-face gaming friend let me know I was the subject of some unflattering statements on the Defense channel due to my high post count in the guild change thread. Most likely deserved as I commented more than my fair share.
First of all I apologize if my strong feelings on the topic were over the top. Many of the people I've quested with on Sarlona are in small casual guilds so I developed some strong feelings on the topic. It seems they always get the short end of the stick to me, but my perspective may be wrong. I will do a better job of self-moderating my posts and the frequency of my posts regarding the guild subject. I made every effort to be respectful and never suggest anything that would hurt any other guilds, but I may have failed in that regard unknowingly.
Secondly there are 10 people in my guild, 9 who are active, and I am not even the leader of the guild. If you would like a list of my alts, please message me and I will be happy to send them. I just don't wish anyone in my guild to get grief over my actions. I believed what I was doing was right, but unfortunately didn't recognize that people were offended/irritated by high post count on the guild subject. Turbine asked for feedback and I already gave more than my fair share.
I changed my signature since that seems to bother some people.
