Why not? Are the minions special? One member can be more useful than a member of staff, more good and others.. and he can get flamed only because havent a stupid usertag?
MPGH is really failing on somethings
Staff were original members like you, before, only now they worked hard to get where they are at, their hard work leads to all sorts of advantages like not being flamed at. Plain and simple. Working hard gets you to stuff like that.
