Okay if you have cockroaches you get bug spray and blast the suckers. You got rats...you get a cat, then realize the cat would rather eat cat food than hunt rats so you go buy rattraps. How on this good green earth does one get rid of shard pests? I'm talking about X shard invaders of the nastiest variety. I will NOT name any player or guild names. If you play Legends you'll know what I'm referring to. This X shard guild showed up on Legends about a year ago. They seemed okay at first, but then. . . Well its like we come in peace, shoot to kill. I don't play much because I am far too busy with university. The rare occasions I do get to play are precious to me. I don't like some snot nosed punk X sharders suddenly telling me and other residences of our shard they are going to make Legends their PRIVATE shard!?!? Hold you durn horses there a minute cowboy, I pay my subs same as everyone else and I been homesteading Legends since 2000. As far as I'm concerned Ya'll can leave the way ya'll came in. There's the door don't let it hit ya where the good lord split ya! Also I don't appreciate being told I DO NOT deserve a Luna house because I don't eat, sleep and breath UO. Well Darlin', that house was a gift from an old friend that said "adios" to UO about 5 years (I think memory's fuzzy). Some of us are trying to get an education, make a living etc. I really wish this ilk would return to the shard they were ran off of. BTW, it not nice to lay your trash on folks on other shards, how about recycle them into something useful? In the grand scheme of things I really don't care ; I mean its all pixels and someday they're gonna pull the plug on UO and it will all just dissolve into the ether. I'd like to think I'll be here to see that, but I'm not so sure anymore. After coming "nez à nez" with death recently, I KNOW there are waaay more important things. I'm lucky to be here on this planet. I'm lucky I walked away from that wreck with only a broken arm. I'm lucky I realize that every single day. (Before anyone screams BS and shenanigans I have pictures of my former beetle and scans of my x-rays I can post, however I am not responsible for any gastrointestinal pyrotechnics cased by said X-rays. Hey its a pretty gross break.) I'd love to know how to take out the trash. If its not possible then I'll take it as a sign that the time has come to move on. Its not just me and Luc. I have several guild mates that are at this point, too. Is there a known way to run a guild off a small under populated shard? Parts of this post were written with my tongue firmly planted in my cheek and liberally sprinkled with wit. I hope you take this in the context it was written. I in no way mean to be hateful or anything. Nowdays I try to approach everything with wit and a sense of humour. There's far too many tears in the world, and I have no wish to be the cause of anymore.
