irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

Getting excited for a special Lady Planeswalkers event in a couple weeks, and here comes That Guy Nobody Likes, posting something backhanded on the Facebook page.

Trying to decide whether I'm feeling belligerent enough to call him on it.

[For context: nobody likes him because he's an extreme rules stickler at casual events, and generally has a bad attitude about things that require him to be sociable]

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@DialMforMara I swear I'm not going to reply with "sorry to hear it"

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@SliverQueen @DialMforMara I definitely got that vibe from their post, but didn’t have any background here. Reminds me of another jerk I used to run into.

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@Tayatranscendent @DialMforMara I'm not sure how to describe it other than saying his last name is entirely too appropriate... When he did come to LPS events, it felt like he was fishing for matches to feel superior about, like, ha ha, finally a meta where I can play this fancy trick uncontested!

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@SliverQueen @Tayatranscendent he called a judge on me for something trivial in a Commander game

and here's the really telling thing: at the end of the night, the judge asked me if I was okay and said they were keeping an eye on him

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@DialMforMara @SliverQueen gah yeah definitely reminds me of the primary reason I stopped doing the “casual” draft at MS. One of the regulars was also a judge and very much like this. Absolutely hated when he showed up for commander nights.

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@SliverQueen I wanted to be less subtle: "what do you mean, despite?"

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@DialMforMara Oo, that could work. Cutting.

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@SliverQueen should I say it? Bearing in mind that my mother reads my Facebook posts and would not be happy to see me starting an argument

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@DialMforMara I can't speak to your interactions with your mother. If you want to hold off, I will have no such compunction when I get home

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@SliverQueen go for it. You can use my line if you want.

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@SliverQueen @DialMforMara I'm somewhat surprised this person hasn't been uninvited yet...

Reminds me of one player we had in Living Greyhawk who was uninvited from most Ontario conventions

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@Canageek @SliverQueen yeah, seriously. I don't know if we have a procedure for doing that?

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@DialMforMara @Canageek well he hasn't shown up for quite a while and I get the impression that he did get a talking to one way or another, but it wasn't made a big deal of otherwise

Re: irl community drama--that one guy nobody likes 

@SliverQueen @DialMforMara Ahhh. Like the guy who stopped coming to conventions in 2002 but was still commenting on the Yahoo group when the have ended in 2011 disagreeing with people's lore interpretation.

..... We mostly just didn't like him coming to conventions as he didn't bath though...
