/ignore Wassercrats

    Here is what i think we should do. Avoid them. Don't respond to them. Just ignore them.

    Especially in the case of Wassercrats. For a while i actually thought he was a 12 year old kid. I mean, think about it, who else would be that stubborn and immediately assume that any critism is simple jealousy? "Don't do that, you'll shoot your eye out, kid." "OH YEAH!! WELL WATCH THIS!!!" *BLAMMO*

    The main problem with trying to communicate with Wassercrats is that he simply "has to have the last word, no matter how foolish it makes him look." I honestly believe, hell, i know that he thinks that by having the last word, he is right. What he refuses to see is that nobody wants to be treated that way. Eventually we just stop, because you can't argue with a brick wall. But Wassercrats sees his last post as "the last and final say on the matter!" He does not see that his post is -30 and the one before was +50 ... he just sees his post as the final word -- therefore he must be right.

    This is why i believe the only way to deal with Wassercrats is to outright ignore him. I have set /ignore Wassecrats for myself, i highly recommend everyone else do the same.
