My leaving the guild was not something I wanted to ever do. It was not a decision based on not being able to raid. I left because I my frustrations became too high... after all my time here in the forum, and my devotion to the guild, I couldn't fathom how my fellow officers wouldn't have more faith and understanding in me.
I shared my experiences with other members, both good and bad in the "officer" section, just to get feed back or make others aware, in case they had or end up having a similar experience. And every negative encounter I had, was turned around and blamed on me... that in some way, I was the one being abrasive. I've recently been called "ridiculous", was accused of being too "emotional", and putting too much "pressure" on people... none of these things are accurate. If any of the issues I brought before my fellow officers was serious to me... instead of mentioning them to you, I would of talked to the "source" directly. I've always boasted about the officers in TBL, and never once claimed to be "special". I've got one 85, who is basically geared as far as it can be for now... which means all my time is invested into other players. I asked for help in return one time, and didn't get it, and I wasn't allowed to be disappointed? I didn't ask that anyone be "kicked" from guild.
So for the record, despite feeling as if I was ganged up on, I hope that the guild is more to your liking now. Some of the members may disappear of course, but whether you believe it or not... I am in know way attempting to pull members away from TBL. I went ahead and hooked up with "Kill Squad" and only the people who have inquired, have I opened an invitation to... some people enjoy what I bring to the game, and others do not... such is life, no hard feelings from my end.
PS... So glad to see you back Hogger!
