Something needs to be done.

Beyond Dominia: The Rumor Mill: Something needs to be done.

This is only my second post on BD, but I visit the professional (non-casual) T1 mill frequently and have learnt a great deal. Lately, as most of you know, there have been some problems and some flamming. OK, lots of flamming. I'm not sure exactely what I'm going to say here but I think a call to reason is in order. So here I go:

1) Come on, let's be mature about this. The most recent flamming (in this mill) is just ridiculous, and must have taken somebody a pathetically long time to write. I'm not mad at these people though, I'm actually sorry for them. I'm sorry that something about this site, obviously, hasn't worked out for them and they've had to resort to this. I'm sorry that someting has taken joy out of their MTG experience, because it's a wonderful experience. Of course I'm not condoning their actions, but people who get pissed do stuff. It's only human. This being said, please stop. It makes BD look very bad, and it makes me like it less. Also, take a step back from life and try and figure out what's making you so unhappy. Life is a great thing that you're not taking full advantage of. I hear humanity is not that bad if you give it a chance :).

2) I think we as a whole need to be more positive about this whole situation. Now we know something needs to be done, let's take advantage of that and do something, change something. Also, BD is a great site and T1 is trully the best type. This is true, and it needs to be said and heard more often.

3) I think the professional T1 mill should have stricter access for people to post. Some people are better at T1 than others, and therefor need different things out of a T1 mill, it's that simple. Maybe it should become a different site altogether? Maybe you should need a different membership to post there, that's hard earned by lots of respect to others and knowledge of T1? Something along these lines should be done IMO, because the current system seems to be falling apart fast.

3) To all spammers and flammers, please don't spam/flam this post. I have nothing against you and I don't want you to give me a reason to have something against you.

Well, I've said what I had to say...hopefully some good will come of it. Please post and show your support. Explain how BD is among the best Magic sites running and why T1 is the best type. After all, T1 does rule. T1 rules.

OK I think the mods deleted a few *pages* of flamming right before I posted my last post. I would find this funny if I didn't look like an idiot :). Thanks mods.
