With the recent drama surrounding FoH's guild leader "Furor" under investigation by California for abuse at Blizzard, it made me realize something. This macho behavior and culture where guild leaders and officers rule their guild with an iron fist, is something I have seen many times in EQ. If you see a guild leader, or an officer, curse at fellow guildies, or be disrespectful towards them, call him out on it, or leave the guild. Guild leaders nor officers should be talking down to people, you have no idea who is behind that screen or what impact your words have on that person. It is scary to think that former guild leaders of Everquest that were known to be abusive, end up being mentioned in criminal investigations for abuse by the state of California. If a leader is abusive to you, call him out on it, and leave. There are plenty of guild leaders and officers who do treat people with respect.
