This isn't the only thread about what I'm about to adress. Anyways, it has come to not only me, but some other fellow players of the community, that some of these game sages are becoming either ****, rude, and abusing their title. To me, we have way too many game sages. We don't need anymore. It also has come to my attention that we, the fellow soldiers of the community, cannot voice our opinions without being warned. Just because you're a GS doesn't give you the right to take away our freedom of speech. I can't even say abc game sage has a big head without being warned of what I'm saying. And two, stacking half of the GS team in captain mode is fine. But kicking people then banning them from vent after you lost only brings your own reputation down. Not putting any names out, but you know who you are. Amen.
Regarding freedom of speech: You occupy a web space that requires agreement to a Terms of Service to use. Constitutional amendments don't apply.
Now that's out of the way with. I strongly agree that GS's should definitely not "abuse their title", though how they may have done so is confusing to me, as we have no power above any other player beyond contact with the GM's.
With regard to voicing your opinion. When done appropriately and in a constructive manner, no one should ever stop you. However if your opinion consists of LOL GSTRAINER IS A STUPID NOOB TROLLOLOL or something similar, then you know, it's understandable that action would be taken to remove such things.
Regarding vent, if you are referring to the Aeria Games official ventrilo server
then no GS at all should have any moderation powers there. If they do, report it, especially if that power is being abused. If this applies to a privately owned vent, then that's got nothing to do with Aeria, thus has no bearing on GS activity.
