Try and work it out with him. I don't agree with LZ's methods (nor did I ever agree to VT or sk's methods either) in the treatment of newbies, but certainly if you try to work it out with him, he will listen.

LZ has yet to learn that you catch more flies- or change more n00bs- with honey than with vinegar. ;)

However, he IS a cool guy once you get to know him. If he starts in on you, just tell him to cool down and chill out, and give advice in a nicer manner. xD He means well, he just gets a bit angry sometimes.

Simply put: There is an ignore feature. Anyone who bugs you too much, just ignore them. Really, that's the best way to stop stupid fights before they happen.

Same goes for AIM. Block, block, block.

Yes, LZ can be a cool guy. But yes, he can be a total arse at the same time. Some people don't even get the chance to see the 'good' because the guy is focusing on the 'bad,' so I don't blame him, but at the same time if he is fine then he's a good enough friend.

So, while Kayden is right that some people who might seem the worse (I for one consider myself on good terms with Pidge, though I disappeared before getting to know the others :P) are sometimes great people, but it is true that some people aren't given the chance to see the good side and, frankly, shouldn't try (it'd save a lot of heartaches). There are some people that other people can't be friends with.

And people shouldn't be expected to stand back and let someone be a jerk to them, waiting for this 'good guy' to pop up. Sure, some of the well known, older members are on LZ's good side, but that doens't mean that we should just ignore those of the younger generation who he's being mean to just because he's nice to us. That's not right. Even if someone's your friend, it's still a mods duty to treat everyone the same ... to some degree.

Plus, I'm not a fan of people using harrasment and jerk-ness to put their point across. Simply put, I strive to keep someone like Raik out of the Forum.

People who are constant jerks, or stir up schtuff, are oftentime kicked out at some point in time.

So in the meantime it's best to not provoke people. If everyone made a list of what people annoy them in this forum, well ... there'd be a big list, and I'm sure I'd be on somebody's. Point is, there's always someone who annoys someone, the key is to get over it unless it goes too far.

If abuse continues even if you really try to ignore it, contact a mod. I'd suggest beign smart with this, however, because if you PM us everytime someone calls you a 'jerk' or somethign we won't take your PM's to heart and probably won't care.

With Love,
Scott

Just to point out something: In your sig can be found "If you think Pikajew will never stop spamming, put this in your sig."

Now, that's the smae view some people have of you. Is what they are doing right? No. Is putting something like that in your sig right? Well, no.

Everyone needs to learn to be a little more tolerant, and like Kenny!

... minus the loli thing, that'd make the forum a rather creepy place ...

First of all, Lord Zangoose isn't mean. He's only trying to tell you you're doing something wrong.

Second of all, I believe when reminding noobs that they're breaking the rules, say it gently, and if they are like THIS:

"shutup you mean uly idiot111"

Then, that's when you, the person that's trying to help, get's pissed off, and begins to flame. Then the noob goes around making spam threads like a little girl saying!

"help111 s@meb@dy'$ bEing mean to me111"

Noobs. You can't do anything about them, but hope they get banned. Flaming, I wouldn't do, and believe me, you don't want to resort to flaming. Because if you think noobs are stupid enough to just keep the flaming in the PMs, you're dead wrong. They will go around asking (Well, spamming) for help. So, keep it clean, and if you can't explain things to them while being nice, then just get a mod's help.

You obviously don't know what sarcasm is. Look it up.

For me, flaming IS a last resort but one used alot. Noobs don't listen when you try to tell them nicely. They justt keep spamming up the forum, lagging it daily to the point where it shuts down, ect. It's just plain annoying.

Do you WANT to get yourself banned? Flaming won't help. Maybe people are being mean because you're acting like a noob, but it doesn't mean you are one.

Calm down dude, last time I checked, you weren't so nice yourself, I mean look at your location. Besides, you aren't exactly so cool yourself...

I am calm. Well, no, not really, not at all. Yeah, true, I'm not so nice myself, but that's what you think. Yes, my location is a joke, derived from someone else's location on another forum. Is that really the point Shadow Eevee? -_-

Remember, flaming will never help, and leeds to a horrible end (ban). You don't want to be banned. Just calm down, and like everyone says.

-Ignore them
-Try and sort things out
-Don't resort to flaming
