This will get my account closed, since I'll be publicly bashing Joe's decisions. (Uh oh, better ban beso again!)
With the exception of the CM wipe, SAW, and Assassin in Eol, I have done all the major updates to this game and Joe has taken credit for it. Perhaps because he didn't want the public to think a player was doing his work, or maybe he didn't want his bosses to know he wasn't doing his own work, who knows. I had no problem with this, I was doing something I wanted to do, and didn't care if people praised Joe for his "brilliant" ideas. Hell, I even got one of the new editors out of the deal, made those lios much easier to do. (Oh whoops, was that not supposed to be said?) But then I find out Joe hasn't actually grown up like I had thought. With the lack of "JOE IS A MORON" posts on the boards, I figured he stopped making retarded bans. But that is simply not the case. That I know of, 4 retarded bans were given out.
Decker for "sexually vulgar words", as the dkill says, but then his email said it was for "CSR harassment" and "previous warnings", but Joe... It was a new account; you said all new accounts started as a clean slate. That's why you let GB continue to play, right?
AngelicSword was banned calling the wipe stupid. Then again, there was a perm-ban for "Joe is a moron".
Blitzkrieg was banned for a week, without a warning, for "**** **** DICK ***** ****" (Most will be filtered, but they are only swear words, nothing r@cist.), because Joe says it was directed "at him". Maybe he's on the list of people Joe's threatening to sue.
And then there was Water. Water got axed from being a mod and given a 4 day ban because Joe ASSUMED he leaked a mod email that stated:
"Bottom line is, I don't EVER want to see anyone publically or privately bashing me or my decisions. If it happens again, You won't be playing infantry ever again.

Way to go Joe, even though it wasn't him at all. Maybe next time, you'll think to remove people who aren't working for the game anymore from the email list, or maybe you won't threaten people for having an opinion! Saying what someone can or cannot say about your decisions makes me believe that you know what you are doing is abuse, but simply have too much fun doing it.
Good luck with just Joe doing updates now, he hasn't had a balanced thought once in his life.
