Thanks for moving the topic. I wasn't sure if this was allowed to be posted here since its sort of "be careful when joining this shell" as well as being tushie hurt.
Thanks! I see you two!

Crazy thing is this was Titan HM.
Yes I did post this on BG and OF as well. Part of it was to vent, part of it as a huge caution.
I agree with what you said. I should have been clearer of what happened prior to talking to the leader of this LS. Basically two people were chatting it up about Titan HM. One person was asking for help for Titan and the other was talking about not wanting to do Titan anymore but just to buy future runs due to convenience. I said you should only buy future runs if you already know the fight, but if you haven't then you should learn it because it is easy enough. This is where the leader jumps in and states that it took her many tries to get Titan HM down. The conversation between the 4 of us did not last more than 2 minutes. 30 seconds past (radio silence/conversation ended)... then I get kicked.
By the way, even after I got kicked, I still ended up helping that person from her LS. We tried 6 times, wiped 6 times without ever getting past the heart phase before the party gave up. This is why she got ticked off when she asked me why I went to a LS member instead of going to her. The reason was we went into the fight right after getting booted, and he was the only one I knew from the LS. My only question to him was "Why did I get booted?" He then replied talk to Emma once we are done, and I said ok.
It seems extreme to me... helping people (from time to time) in over 2 months, never asking for help once and getting booted for this. As far as making "easy" comments; the only one I can recall was saying something similar to Ifrit about a month ago when someone compared Ifrit 1.0 and 2.0. That is it. 2 "easy" comments in 2 months; getting booted w/o a warning or anything.
True, I guess it is more of a caution more than anything (as well as a bit of QQ). I was going to go back until she gave me the 1 condition: Phrase any future opinion (in probably everything) as my opinion and to make it clear that it is merely that. Common sense would tell you that talking about how easy or how hard a game or boss already states that it is an opinion. I even commented that Yoshi said the fight was easy... and even stated that even that was an opinion.
I would have, if it were not for that condition she gave me (which I posted to Louiscool). She wanted me to take care of potentially hurting one of the 120 members. I mean sure there are some things that should not be talked about, foul language, using all caps, talking about illegal topics like RMT etc. But I mean c'mon.
Pretty much. Seems she used the "I got many many tells from members" to hide her own frustration over the fight. From BG it seems she was kicked at least once from a LS in FFXI due to drama.
I wish there was some sort of history. I helped Emma once a couple of weeks ago with clearing Garuda for a relic. I do go into conversations from time to time, but since I am in 8 (well 6 now) linkshells, it isn't too often that I stay conversating for a long time in just one shell, I usually just chat-hop. But yeah, never got a warning or /tell from anyone in the past or current. So imagine to my surprise when I got booted.
I think OF stated it best:
It seems to me she's treating members from her shell like their kids in her classroom, despite acknowledging you're both adults. Might be a power trip thing...
If people get offended from others saying Titan is easy, they've got some issues to deal with.
