Jul 16th 2011 4:22PM If the officer demoted him and took away his bank privileges BEFORE asking him why he took all that stuff, then yea, that officer overreacted. I don't think the OP says if the issue was discussed beforehand or not.
However, as a "Guild Leader" of a smallish, casual guild myself, I wouldn't have reacted this way (I put "Guild Leader" in quotes because when I started the guild and had most of the current members, I made it Guild Policy that it's not just MY guild, it's EVERYONE'S guild. We all work to level it, we all contribute, so therefore it belongs to everyone and my "Guild Leader" tag is just so I can set ranks and clean out the bank every month).
Ok, that being said, is the OP was in my guild and had done that, I would've approached him and had a polite, mature discussion about it, preferably over vent because I could get a feel if he was telling the truth or not by how he answers and the tone of his voice. A lot of "Ums" or "Uhs" or word stammering is a red flag (unless they have a speech problem, of course, which I'd take into consideration). Plus, it was low lvl stuff. If it was THAT big of a deal they could've requested he put gold back in to cover it or something.
I feel bad for the OP. Not because of his spinal problem, but because he feels alienated from his guild now. If they don't want him in the guild, they need to kick him, not be passive aggressive about it and make him feel unwanted so he leaves.
Jul 7th 2011 6:41PM I love fishing in the Dalaran fountain. I'm still working on the achievement to get all of the coins but I'm almost done. I like reading what each coin says also. One coin, a silver one, actually has my favorite prayer on it:
"Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
Courage to change the things I can and
Wisdom to know the difference"
It's the only coin I kept. I have it in a bag in my bank :)
