Congrats, you have successfully driven me away from the Siren Forum. As you can see, all three stickies has been removed.

I tried to be cool with you all, and all I got was a slap in the face. Don't be surprised if I barely post here, or don't post at all.


I know I won't be missed regardless. For those of you that actually care, you can always send me a message through AIM at: FFXISiren Exodus.

{Goodbye.}

Umm... sorry to hear that, man. I rather enjoyed your posts.

Doesn't seem a lil over the top though for a message board? No worries, people don't always sound as they come across.

Then again, I don't know the whole story, so I can't really be expected to have a clear opinion on it.

I'll ellaborate.

****** A comes in and complains about ****** B. ****** B gets put on List A by Exo. This makes ****** A happy, but then, enter Random person 1, who says that ****** B is cool then Random person 2 says the same as Random person 1. Exo, having examined the stories from all sides decided that ****** B doesn't belong on such list.

****** A is angry now, and to take revenge, rates down poor Exo, for merely trying to keep peace, now you tell me what's wrong with this picture. In fact, he has been rated down right now, how is any of this his fault, he was trying to help out the Siren community and he got stabbed in the back by some ****** kids. Way too many kiddies in our Server unfortunately...


You will be missed, but never forgotten ; ;

People. -_-

Don't leave a forum because of a silly rating! People who are PO'd and immature always try these silly ways of bringing people down.

And from the looks of it you seem to be a helluva lot more liked than you were hated.

Man, you brought character to the siren server forums. Don't give up on that over a rating. >.<;

Stupid people out there... I hope you see how even the simplest things can affect people now, and think before you act. Unlikely though, in this world...

There's more to it than that. If your rating gets low enough at an overall standard, you go under "Sub-Default." What that does is that nobody can see ANYTHING you posts unless they adjust their filter.

When it comes to a thread, when the first post of that thread drops beneath a certain level of karma, it vanishes into "sub-default." All three stickies were in danger of that, and so was I.

Since giving to the community brought me my own downfall, I asked the admins to nuke all three threads to prevent further trolling.

Oh well. That's what I get for being so naive.

I really agree with Coji. I enjoyed a lot of your posts and looked up to your opinions on things because I thought that you made a lot of sense. I really hope that you come back ^_^

Exo is the suxxor!!! I'm the leet....


LOL that sounds so propper. He tried dawn, he tried to please us, he tried to make our community better, but the community attacked him and then ganged up on him. WHat's a man to do? I actually support his cause. I'm sad that he'll be leaving, but I'm happy for him because he's moving on to better places, where he can post his mind freely w/o fear of getting trolled...

I'm not going to perma-leave, but I won't be as active as I used to be. I'm sorry, it just seems like I'm not wanted.

Really hit me hard when the /befriend thread fell first, then the LS Thread, and ironically enough, the /blist thread was actually last to be trolled.


/sigh


Now, if only I can get payed early so that I could put money on my account and reactivate premium services. -.-;;

I'm sorry, I wasn't aware of that. With the potential for trolling I don't particularly agree with that system, but that's not your fault. If that's the case those people are even more low-life than I thought. I'm sorry to hear you have to deal with idiots who take such immature ways to make their problems clear.

Here's hoping they drop the junior high crap and deal with their problems up front. I hope to see you around. ; ;

Exodus, why let stuff bother you like that? By you saying your turning your back on Siren completely you are letting them win... And all ofus in the siren forum think of you in a good way mostly. If you sweat the small stuff life isnt fun.
Hope you stick it out bro.

Exo, come back man, I'm sticking around on the forums still, mainly because of what others said concerning my situation.

It was a good idea to get rid of the stickies, because they were never really used, and when they were used, they were used improperly (I.E "/blist add Jerkface")

I'm going to be back in game tonight (Finally!!) and I'll make sure to send a /tell to thank any friends who gave advice and/or tried to help when I was frustrated.

Did you get that mess with your CC fixed Exo? I'd really like to see you in-game so we could party together man.

I hope you come back Exo, these forums are a barren wasteland without your involvement.

Thanks for the support Artem and Drano. :) Problem is, that I would have to be driven to getting a new account just because I'm getting trolled here.


****, even the Siren Pics is trolled now. Invisible people just don't want me here.


It would suck if all my posts become invisible due to a sub-default overall karma. ****, I'm close to loosing Sage already.

I better see you in-game man, I'm gonna be in need of a good PLD when I get into a party.. You'd be surprised what I can do with 2 Viking Axes (mwahaha)

Doh - didn't see this before I posted in the "support Exo" thread.

While I will admit that I always thought the /blist thread was a timebomb waiting to go off, I know that Exo had good intentions of protecting his fellow siren peeps from dealing with someone that is not worth dealing with.

In the end, it seems rather silly that people would vent their furstrations on him as opposed to the folks that put them on the list.

Just wondering to myself what happened to the stickies, having been busy of late it's hard to hit the forum unless it's for a brief moment while looking up other in game stuff.

Anywhoot, I rated Exo up in hopes of helping a small manner to regain his Karma lvl and because I think you've been the most helpful person on this board.

Guess it only shows that if you give an idiot a computer, lots of free time they can feel like a big shot for once in their life.

Getting trolled over one thread hardly seems a reason to nuke all 3 stickies.

I can't say I'll miss the blacklist thread (I think I made my feelings on its existence quite clear), but at least leave the LS advertisement thread. -_-;

Unless this is just a sympathy fishing expedition. :P

Getting trolled over 1 thread, of course, would be a silly reason to leave.


Getting trolled on not only all three stickies, but almost anything I post, in other words, is a good reason to leave.

Like I said before, I'm not going to be perma-gone, but I am making myself scarce.
