After getting several IMs, e-mails, and even texts, it appears that an issue has come up and needs to be addressed. I'm personally shocked that it does, because I thought we were all either grown-ups, or at least somewhat mature people here, but apparently that's not the case.
We have rules here at TLD, and those rules apply to all the servers, game servers and IRC alike. Furthermore, they apply to everyone; Lions, Regulars, or even people that just join us once in a blue moon. If you don't like the rules, pardon my french, but you can get the fuck out.
Lately in IRC, people have been dropping the word 'faggot' like it's some funny thing, and then giving their excuses for why they should be able to use it. The bottom line is this, it's against our rules, and you will not use it while in any of our servers. Absolutely no variation of the word will be tolerated. If you don't like that, feel it's unfair, or think you have the right to say whatever you want in the server, then feel free to hit the disconnect button, and not join us in IRC. From this point forward, people will start getting banned for it. The kind of language isn't welcome on TLD, never has, and never will.
Also, we understand not all personalities mesh, and that people may rub other people the wrong way. Get over it. There are ways to block people in every single medium of communication. People need to quit going out of the way to be extreme assholes to people they don't like. If you don't like someone either tell them directly to their face in private, ignore them completely, or just shut the fuck up about it. We don't like drama here, and if people insist on causing it over petty garbage, then once again, they can just leave. People join IRC/TF2/TLD games to chat and have fun, not to listen to why X hates Y and why they think they should die in a fire.
The bullshit ends now people, if you're not capable of acting like a somewhat decent human being, then leave, because we don't want it here.
tl;dr - The rules are there for a reason, they're non-negotiable, and no one is exempt from them. Keep breaking them, and you're no longer welcome here.
