I didn't really mean that directed at you personally, I was just addressing the forum as a whole for how I feel about chat etiquette. The cycle of fighting always ends up repeating itself eventually, and it can only be stopped by ourselves as individuals if we change our habits.
Most fighting/arguing ends up with disagreements in the public chat, which is fine - as long as it's civil. When you start making personal attacks and calling someone out, or purposely try to start a fight, nobody likes to see that in #general (or any public discussion, for that matter) - it makes things awkward for everyone else just wanting to casually talk. I make it a point that when an argument gets out of hand, to either bring it to PM before things get out of hand and have to be moderated.
That said, I also agree with what you said before:

And for what Bushi replied to the "newbie" - surprise, Eiki's right. If you dislike being in Discord or think you're being "discriminated" against, why be there in the first place? This would have been easier to solve if brought to the attention of staff themselves.
, I'm sorry you got muted, and I'm also sorry that you think everyone "circlejerks" with the staff and that you think can't argue with us. We try to do moderate things fairly enough as it is, but the chat is run by you guys, the community. All we do is make sure things are civil.
