I do not fear the lack of anonymity, if the admins wish to ban me for the following statements then fine though it'd do nothing more than justify my responses and only strengthen this "we're right, you're wrong" image that the LM admins have got amongest the community at large.
In my opinion LM has downhill and the major route of this problem is the "I can do what i like" attitude. I respect that you pay for the server LB, i respect the work, the money and the time you've put into this server and give you mad props for it. However the attitude you use to govern your server passes down onto both the players in the community, not just old but new.
Things such as blockscripts 1 because you say so is a poor justification, all it does is spread misinformation about scripts. If you'd care to justify it with a real reason and have an intelligant and mature debate about it then sure, but "my way or the highway" isn't the best way to run a community server i'm afriad. This attitude of scripts are bad and they'll not go over my dead body then passes down to other players, this is then passed onto new players who buy into it, why wouldn't they? LM is a respected and well known community so how are they to know otherwise?
So yes, blockscripts 1 and your reason for adding it is my first problem with LM, not just the blocking of scripts yourself but your reasons for the decision are pretty weak at best. Just because someones a freely elected president doesn't mean they can commit genocide, just because it's your server doesn't give you the right to push an anti scripting agenda.
My second issue with the server is spawn camping. This rule has been used to ban so many players who have been happy people though nearly always to a high skill level. You can claim all you like that you don't prejudice againist skilled players but lets look at the facts here, how many HIGH skilled regulars are left? 1, 2? Go figure.
Here's an idea, why not remove the rule entirely, add an umbra spawn protection for aliens and stop hindering gameplay? Hurrah! You see umbra spawn does what it says on the tin, aliens spawn in umbra. Lone marines can't spawn camp that unless the aliens are totally asleep and lets face it, they aren't going to win in that situation anyway so by not spawn camping and ending it quickly you're breaking the "dont drag a game out rule."
The rules are out of control and do nothing but hinder gameplay, i hate to have to stop and check myself to make sure by standing in this corridor or blinking in MS i'm not violating a certain rule and will end up with a post in the PR forum. That's not fun, that's a pain in the ass and when rules start to interfere with the game like that then you have an issue.
My final qualm is about the PR forum. (what a link!) Well maybe not the PR forum but some of the justifications for bans used. Quite frankly they're a joke and i find it humerous that the best advertisement for avoiding LM is in your public relations forum. "Hi i'm u235, i don't like you, i don't need to justify, prove or backup my actions, i have insubstantial evidence and you will now be banned for looking at me cock eyed, goodday." Really good PR there, no wonder LM is growing so much and so many new individuals are joining, with adminning like that where could you possibly go wrong?!
