I'm confused. Are you saying that Daniel believes that pissing-off
your players, but not to the point that you make them leave, is
*not* the Art of Administration? You see, he's completely caught
up in the words, unable to see the ideas and motivations behind
them. He understands how to run a mud properly, and he has good
intentions, but he has fallen for a popular fallacy... that you
have to frustrated players in a way that would make them want
to leave the mud. I cannot get this point across to someone who
will not listen and only responds aggressively despit my best
