Moon Guard's Goldshire is full of people from other servers who have heard about Moon Guard's Goldshire and have come to see what the fuss is about (and more to participate than will admit). Most Moon Guard regulars avoid Goldshire because there's nothing there for them -- but unfortunately Goldshire makes for a lot more entertaining Youtube videos than the other 98% of the server. And so the cycle continues. The reptuation Moon Guard has -- that the *entire server community* is made up of Goldshire -- IS undeserved. Maligning a server community of thousands based on the actions of less than a hundred (and most of those a rotating roster of tourists) is unfair to the whole. And it's very specifically unfair to Venita, who's working hard to make Moon Guard a better place -- trying to bolster the community and promote the positive about MG, to fight that unfair reputation -- to tell her and anyone who might be inspired by her that her efforts are pointless. *That's* why you're getting downvoted. It does seem like, in a way, you're on her side, but you've got a funny way of expressing it. The player community *can't* fix Goldshire on its own -- and while Blizzard admins do get involved, with new trolls rolling in all the time it's something of an uphill battle even for them. But we *can* promote the awesome community outside of Goldshire. And maybe someday the entire server will not be judged for the actions of a few.
