I don't really wanna comment on whether the loot was given properly or not because I am not aware of their rules nor what exactly the situation was (as some have said, it's unclear on the mail). My real gripe is how the GM handled this situation. He was being selfish and immature, and anyone who is in this guild with him should up and leave right now. When someone starts acting in such a manner it is a clear sign that things aren't going to go very well. As the article author stated in his reply, he has set the tone and people are either going to start throwing fits of rages over loot or they are going to catch on to what the GM is like and start leaving. I used to be a GM for a pretty well made guild (I've stopped WoW due to professional reasons) and one of my officers had a flair for messing up with loot a lot when he was ML. I never ever ever demoted or even considered such an option because even when things get messed up there is a way to correct it. There is a huge taste of coward in this story too as the GM apparently didn't have the spine to state his thoughts to Anonymous. He waited for him to log off and then demote him. Apparently this GM hasn't made the guild in order to enjoy the benefits of team spirit. He also doesn't seem to grasp the notion that a leader has to, above all things, care for his guildies. I don't claim to have been the best leader (though I like to believe I've been better than this guy) but I've done my best to give the best examples possible by upholding and following the rules, pass on gear, rejoice on others' successes and be as fair as I can be. All of this because I wanted to make a guild that would last. So, yeah, Anonymous if you are reading this, don't beat yourself up. Even if you did mess up on loot distribution, it happens and it is no excuse for a GM to act like a spoiled brat. Good luck finding a guild with a more mature and responsible leadership.
