It's sad this has to be said but with the influx of these types, something's gotta be done. Just because I joke with the people in chat does not mean I will hesitate show any authority, same goes for other mods and admins. Some people have taken that friendliness we show in chat to mean they can overstep boundaries and make themselves too comfortable. I personally joke with others in chat because they've been around for a while and they proved themselves to be great people that I can talk to - and the assholes get weeded out fast. If you start catty bullshit, you can be sure my friendly demeanor goes right out the window and I will act as admin of this site, as will the others on the team.
And now, this kitty.
