there in lies a major shortcoming of the "communications" here at wgt. A fine internet game indeed. Yet, when technical problems arise, or life jumps up and takes you from your planned game time, there is no way to immediately let people know what has happened. Then, some feel its ok to just post and mail derogatory comments about the action that took place. This gets posted everywhere and some feed off of that to establish some kind of an awareness of who one is. I have been subject to one individual who thinks he knows why I left a game because one of the players wanted to call me names and question my integrity to the unwritten but accepted ways of the game: Please don't quit unless its an emergency.
The occurence of these bullies who base their accusations on very little evidence has been increasing. I always play with anyone who comes in to a match I am in......yet I will now be skiddish as to the potential affects should I have to leave the game for an unplanned reason.
In the long run, does it really matter. To quickly claim someone as a quitter is absurd. Quitters will find their come-upance.
I have ranted enough. I had to because now I enter into games wondering if anyone is ready to attack you on such small purpose. Thanks for reading this.
