We have a problem in South Africa, a Turkish problem.
There is a large group of Turks who is in the country and in the RISE party. They have been accused of PTO. Leon and Ejdatful, the most outspoken of the two, have also been called less-than savory names as well. (A lot by myself.)
This isn't right, since they've been here, they've simply been outspoken, and no crime past that. I'll continue to argue with them as players, but no more personal attacks. Arguing is a part of the game. I argue with Mulderpf all the time, and Al Kazar. Seisan has been more outspoken towards me as well (lately) I became a part of the "Bully the Turk" squad and I'm sorry.
A recap since they've been here.(Mostly Leon and Ejdatful)
-Played a couple months
-Had no questionable congress wins
-Let in 0 citizens illegally (Doomhammer came in via Ostdeustche, which was a product of another player)
-Continued to serve in congress legitimately
-Got overly offended by Tenshibo, got him banned.
-Got even more pissed when Tenshibo came BACK to the forums.
-Grew with aggression as more players accused them of PTO and blatantly attacked them.
-Finally grew to the tipping point and voted to impeach a CP that they thought was not serving their needs.
To be honest, there's nothing wrong with any of this stuff. Other than that there's a little too much "thin skin" involved. But they shouldn't have had to deal with name-calling in the first place, as they are players too, who have continued to follow procedure and done nothing illegal.
There are those who have had to directly deal with Leon and Ejdatfalafel (which is a funny name and not a personal attack of any kind, so get over that one) and those that have can keep their opinions of them. But I have only dealt with them on a public spectrum and for my actions I am sorry.
You are valuable, strong members of society and I have wronged you.
Thanks You for hearing this,
