in thread We should elminate: Anonymous, and DOWN-voting

It is just a game until personal details are cross-linked to it in a deliberate attempt to create a real-world punishment for disagreeing with the hive-mind. At that point it ceases to be a game and gets serious and personal.

The gods do not care what monks do to each other so long as it shows no possibility of diminishing their power and status. I wonder just how long Corion would accept someone using all their votes to down-vote him before he logged in as Co-Rion and abused his godly powers to defeat the attack upon his monk level character. My guess is not long at all.

    It's a game when it gets serious and personal. Personally, I prefer seven-card stud. When you see yourself pitching in your greens and blacks, you start to understand the meaning of the word "game".

    Don't you think one of the main goals of gaining power is to use to further your own ends? I agree that there are nobler goals. But realistically, personal aggrandizement is a driver. Why are you complaining?
