Obviously many people care, as made evident by this thread. Apparently you don't, which is a shame. But based on the fact that you can't seem to comprehend the problem this would have been and your shallow comments, then there's no loss that you don't get it. Move along.
Arete, keep doing what you do best. Many players feel that you are the only Asim that actually listens to them. Maybe because the rest are just tired of listening to them... lol
Everything needs balance, you bring balance to the Asim as you look at both sides of the problems, not just the one view expressed by whoever is complaining. Keep doing what you do, it IS worth it and you are needed by the small player here at Combine that are on the bottom of the food chain. Those on the top haven't been here in a long time so they forgot what it took them to get where they are at.
Elijah, 10% of the members ONLINE NOW actually contributed to this discussion, so I wouldn't really call it "many" people.
You're right, I don't care; it's none of my business.
It's amazing that you would assume to know anything about my comprehension skills or lack thereof.
I think you're confusing "terse" with "shallow". It's ok - everyone maeks mistakse :)
Move along? Ok thank you sir.
The bottom line:
Because there are those of you that give waaaaaay too much of a shit about Siarica/Arete, Arete has stepped down. Bravo. Do I think Arete made the right choice in unbanning her? No. Do I think that being a jackass about it and clamouring for his resignation will result in a positive outcome? Clearly not.
I care a lot more about one ASim remaining and doing a good job overall than some hacker wanna-be coming back early.

This. A million times over.
Lots of the people who apologized to support Arete after his announcement were the ones using the harshest language possible to describe what was a mistake made by an otherwise extremely competent Asim. Even worse is that a large number of the people complaining are completely unaffected by the mistake. It'd be nice to see the community grow collectively from this where we don't overreact over every single thing, but I'm not holding my breath.
Considering the consequences of your actions and the reasons behind them would have been even better.....then you wouldn't have needed to worry about the banhammer splitting your skull.
Leave Arete alone, you've caused them enough of a headache with your manipulative attempts thus far. You can't participate in this game anymore, its time for you to move on and find something else (reality would be nice, as you won't be needing to spend so much time in a simulation).
