I think homosexuality is a red herring and irrelevant to the resolution of this issue.Let me ask a simple question. What if we replaced the term "guild" and inserted the words "your work place" at every location in the text. Would you still feel the same way reading the text?Have any of your heard about EEO. Do you understand that if you date someone you are supervising it is by definition sexual harassment, regardless of the how "fair" the two parties are to each other? There is an inherent inequality of power that is easily subject to abuse. ***I recognize that a WoW guild is not always identical to a work place situation.*** But for some people it is and for some guilds it is. All I can say is that if I didn't feel comfortable revealing the nature of the relationship I'd leave the guild. I think the letter writer has every right to be concerned. This is the type of thing that has the power to be corrosive to guild cohesion.
