I know you know how to run a mud properly, and that you know
what it takes to be a good administrator. Your philosophy that
you stated does not match what I have (and you have agreed)
to be the Art of Administration. Your stated philosophy is
the same thing I've hard many administrators who were
self-destructing say. Those administrators should have known
better, but they thought it was their job to frustrate
players... they lost sight of the fact that the goal is
the player's enjoyment. I was merely trying to point out
that your stated philosophy and what you know to be the
true Art of Administration don't coincide.

I think this speaks for itself. You realize an idiot saying
2 + 2 = 4 is still right? You can't avoid facts by stating
that the person giving them is an idiot. Besides that it's
not productive. Imagine how this would have played out if
you listened to what I said instead of taking the fact that
you know how to properly run a mud (which I don't disagree
with) and assumed I had nothing to say. You're stated
philosophy isn't incorrect in words, the idea it represents
is flawed. You should know better.
