    So I read on another thread that if the mods dont like the way the games going that they can and will remove people from voted positions. Yet another thread talks about players being tossed into jail or moved to absurd locations because mods dont like the players game style or there "disruptive" play during events.
    So now stratics employees are making UO decisions. UO is not what it was, Siege is not what is was.
    Long Live (not player ran) Siege.
    Whats your thoughts?
    Personally I find it wrong. If your wronged in the game now, the same people can lock/remove threads, silence you, and jail you. Menissa has ultimate powers... True?

    Mods? Moderators? You mean EMs or GMs if a player was tossed into jail they where doing something WONG, if they where moved away from an Event they where harassing being disruptive, or abusing something. Mesanna has power to do those and more yes and has been able to for a while. All you are relaying is hearsay, most likely from someone who was wrong and is whining about it

    Yes, and I also have it on good authority that the Stratics mods were behind 9/11 and are heading the research on some crashed UFOs in the Nevada desert. There has also been talk that they were involved in the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914, but that one seems a little far-fetched to me.

    Only GMs and Devs have the ability to remove disruptive players, and by disruptive this generally means things like spamming and ranting at official events like Dev meetings, not for PKing or such. Unless EM powers have changed drastically recently, they have no such authority/ability. An EM (the king) could remove a person from an elected position if they were not fulfilling the requirements of the role, as laid down by Mesanna's guidelines.

    But I am unaware of any of the above actions having being taken on Siege to date.

    Event Moderators - not Forum moderators! That's what EM stands for. For pity's sake don't we get enough crack pot conspiracy theories?

    I read threads, asked questions with question marks, I expressed my opinion, and asked you the reader for your opinion.
    For this I get ultra defensive people like other mods and known EM's to throw garbage in and out.
    Wasn't trying to start conspiracy theories.

    Also, im smart enough to know that someone can have 10 accounts, be a EM, a GM, a stratics moderator, and a differently named Poster.
    With SO FEW people left in UO and the length UO's been around, asking my questions is not absurd.

    I heard that if you tape pennies to your eyes while playing, you will become invisible to the mods.
