This does not make sense to me. So you think it is fair for people to make up theories out of whole cloth without evidence, but it is unfair to point out that the theory sounds implausible? That simpler motivations might apply?I don't think it's fair to criticize conjecture when that is currently all that is available.
I suppose I should justify my use of that word. Right now, I have not heard any plausible motivation for the admins to have made their decision without compelling evidence, leaving persecution the only thing left I can think of. The idea that the admins would naturally release all their reasoning and evidence unless they had something disreputable to hide strikes me as implausible. I made an earlier post with hypothetical reasons for their not sharing already. This does not mean that I naturally accept everything the admins say; nor would I be shocked if it turned out that Bee was a victim of an unscrupulous cabal of players who were threatened by his genius and who pressured the admins into their decision. I just don't think such a scenario as likely as that they made a tough decision based on reasonably compelling evidence.Really not that paranoid at all.
I suppose my favorite aoe2 player is The Viper, and if he were in Bee's shoes right now, I would believe the admins totally had their ducks in a row, and I would be stoked because I would have tons of material for my podcast.Out of curiosity, who is your favorite aoe2 player, Felix? And would you be ok if they were in Bee's shoes right now?
