We’ve had first hand experience with that as well. Ever heard of the infamous Ollo?
He’s this manchild who believes he’s the centre of the universe, and that he’s the main developer of E:D and that he should decide what is made first. And his was of protesting is by dicking others over. Like he tried with us:
Obviously, that was a failure, since by the time the CG started, the lockdown was already nearly done, not to mention that the BH CG was at the same station. Meaning, that the lockdown would go away even quicker.
He tried again a couple of days later:
And once again, we managed to throw it around quite quickly (Gyvatanoy is a tiny system, so influences are very easy to change, and me and my wing of two other CMDR’s delivered over 4M bounty PP, not to mention the tens of other CMDR’s that worked their asses off). Guess what his response was?
Fdev has reacted with the hand of god and adjusted things ( which is a success for us, as we can now say well Fdev have some rules for some but will intervene for others - which weve been saying triple elite groups and big youtube PMFs like WoJ have had superior support over small groups who Fdev have shafted out of Cgs, stuffed up colonia work and even delayed some PMFs for 12 months or so)
I won’t go into rage mode even more, just know that LordDerpu in the second thread is me, Ollo stalked me on Reddit for a bit (commenting on a bunch of random threads), and then banned me from the subreddit i.e. I can’t comment anymore.
Quite ironic, a subreddit advocating for free speech about ED banning a person for not agreeing with them.
