I'm not complaining of the consequences, as I clearly stated "IRON is free to make their own decisions regarding hot they treat ex-members." My complaint is that the statement was worded in a way presenting IRON as passive when people leave, whereas we see Cydonian being IP banned for roguing ODN, who has no connection to IRON save a senator treaty, nor did he join Non Grata. We see the only sanctions of the war being imposed on myself and Rearview. IRON, who held no active DoW in the war, felt they should sanction, whereas FTW, the ally directly in the conflict made no sanctions.
Do not get me wrong, I've enjoyed the people I met in IRON. IRON has some wonderful people, yourself and Samus included for me. Me personally, I feel Council could've reacted much differently regarding the other members. We don't see sanctions from NPO going out on their members who left. We don't see IP bans going around on the Polar members who left. I hold no content for the actions placed against me, as former Council, I was well aware my actions would result in consequences. I do, however, hold disdain for multiple incidents recently. Banning Cydonian, who is a close friend, for simply leaving. Targeting Rearview with sanctions because he told The Warrior he was leaving and planned to rogue AFTER he left. Forgive me for being defensive of the friends I had made amongst my time in IRON. (I was mistaken in declaring wars prior to leaving the AA by seconds, but if you see, I declared those wars at 10:01pm server time and joined the NG AA at 10:01pm server time. Anyone with an ability to click my nation name could see I was not on the IRON AA.) There are other incidents recently I'd rather keep off the OWF, as it is not the peanut galleries business nor relevant to this DoW.
Poaching is a valid CB, but again, I asked who he tried to post? To my knowledge, granted I'm not Caustic nor the individuals claiming he has, I've seen no proof to such claims.
I will enjoy my short blaze of glory, I have no intention of sticking around a world where I will only collect taxes, pay bills, and occasionally congratulate an alliance for signing their umpteenth treaty this year. I would, however, like to see the pixels I've acquired burn and will be glad this curbstomp can both expedite the process and allow people who do more than lob an occasional cruise missile while eating dozens of rounds of aid.
