Well, it appears the email is moot since its writer rejoined her guild, anyway. (WarcraftRealms charhistory ftw.)First of all, I have little or no pity for this guild's GM. I was an officer of a large guild, and I worked my ass off daily to keep things running smoothly.Nevertheless, over some drama that's not worth going into here, one of our top officers left, followed closely by the GM. It was hell. I scrambled every time I logged in to keep the ship righted, but we took on too much water.The leadership role eventually fell to me...after we'd been through three others. By the time I inherited, we'd gone from the guild "voted most popular" on our realm to a guild so broken, it didn't resemble a guild any more. I couldn't salvage it, and so I eventually disbanded, after keeping all current members informed as well as offer to speak to each and every one of them and make introductions to guilds that I thought would be suitable for their needs.I did everything in my power to keep a broken guild functional, so I have absolutely no pity--and not a little scorn--for a guy who has a guild with nice members (like this correspondent), and yet wastes the time of his members and officers. And then he has the gall to cry about it...? Wowz.The very definition of "less qq, more pewpew."As for Burdena going back to this guild...? I know she probably has excuses like "my 'friends' are there," etc., but guess what. You can make new friends. Going back to a guild that is a waste of your time and talent, and doesn't respect your time and hard work as an officer AND with a GM who is emotionally manipulative to boot...? To me, this isn't very different from a woman who stays with a man who is emotionally and physically abusive.We get the guilds we deserve.
