You don't just gkick someone that fast when they have been around forever for one bad day. This is the fastest way to break a guild when he starts his own and starts to recruit his friends out of your guild.
Feb 2nd 2009 1:39PM I think what the author was trying to say is that the officer stooped down to anyones level is addressing the situation in the first place so the "rise above" verbage works here.
And by being wrong and not apologizing it gives off the "no matter what i do it will never be wrong for the sole reason that i am an officer" attitude which in general just lowers guild moral.
