If you read Marc/Darmaid's post, he did e-mail her
privately about this, and she did not respond. It is
his job as moderator to censure, when complaints are
made, and the offending person does not heed his
warning. I'm not saying anyone has to be happy about
it, but when our Baron or Baroness makes a request,
out of courtesy and respect, it should be honored,
period. I was not happy about a decision one of our
past King's made, but my choice was to either accept
it, or leave the game. I was not able to argue my
point of view with him. Our Baron and Baroness are our
nobility in this region and embassadors of the King,
and should be treated as such. If it was an honest
mistake by your sister-in-law, then maybe you can
moderate between Darmaid and her about getting her
uncensured. But everyone needs to understand that
respecting nobility no matter what level they are, is
required if you are going to play this game. By
publicly refusing to honor the Baron's request, she
was not being respectful or playing honorably.
