Then the player left, I think before the vote even ended**.
Shortly thereafter I got a whisper from the player saying something about how nasty I was to kick them out. I tried to respond with "I voted no", but the player had blocked me. 😏
So now my whole legacy - some of the most easy going characters to group with, imho - is blocked by that guy. 🙂

Note - @ that player, if they happen to read this - anyone can start a vote_kick - not just the "leader".
Don't quit the group until the vote ends. 😏
Don't block someone until they have at least one chance to respond to your whisper. 🙄

** as usual, I was in no condition to pay close attention. 😉

P.S. Don't get the wrong impression. I'm actually in favor of Legacy ignore, but it can be unfortunate some times.
They may or may not be a decent player., maybe they were having a bad day, or perhaps they are 'that' person all the time. But if he's going to send a message like that, then block you before you respond, then it's his loss.


I've always been in favour of legacy ignore. It will have teething problems, and sometimes unintended consequences, but hopefully not too much.
They are so busy being non conformists, they are actually becoming more of a conformist , than conformists are {stupid is a hard barrier}

Agreed. Absolutely juvenile behavior.

You make a fair point. It's really turned into more of a conversation between everyone else about why they support the function and not really even acknowledging the OP anymore. Carry on, then, I say!

Besides, the OP didn't bother to reply to anyone in the past 5 days since he started the thread so it's fair game I say.
