What'd you do/say? Maybe you deserved it.

Edit: Running from a conflict won't solve anything, you'll have the same problems elsewhere, I promise. Better to solve it where you stand <3

I'd also like to apologise for anyone I may have offended or upset during my time in the public chat.

Walking, stumbling on these shadowfeet

Part of the seduction of most religions is the idea that if you just say the right things and believe really hard, your salvation will be at hand.

With Jediism. No one is coming to save you. You have to get off your ass and do it yourself - Me

Is the person's name actually Felicia, or are you being rude here? I'm guessing because there's a hashtag that it's the latter. I certainly hope you didn't just offer snark to a newcomer. That wouldn't look pretty toward any pupils/persons of lower ranks, especially after the person offered an apology in their last post.

The days when a Sith offers kind advice and a Jedi Knight is cold are upon us. :whistle:

I missed the drama with the chat issue, but I'm getting pretty bored of the Knights here copping flak for EVERY DAMN THING.

Too forgiving, then too snarky, too demanding, then too soft.

I get the whole "lonely at the top" thing, but I really don't see the point in every tom, dick, and susan telling Knights they've not met a standard (especially when those dicks and susans don't consider themselves to be adherents to TotJO's teaching and methods)

(This probably is better suited the rant section, let's see if I change my mind within the allowable edit period and pull it)

Leadership is a heavy burden, love.

Those who can't stand up under scrutiny, can't support the weight, should shed it :kiss: :kiss:

Indeed it is. However, Leadership is about principles, not just popularity. Leaders, in this case Knights, should not be required to amend their ways because of differing opinions (especially if those opinions come from those who do not shoulder the same heavy burden): so long as they adhere to their principles.

I applaud that TotJO allows and even encourages each of us, regardless of rank, to voice our opinions and concerns, though, like James, I find the current climate of calling out "The Knights" as being inadequate over every minor difference of opinion to be rather tired and unnecessary.

All respect is earned; especially self-respect.
