I know some of them drive you totally crazy, and try to hit every button to get a "response" from you. They push it as far as they can, sometimes they go too far, but usually stop at actually crossing the line. Still they harassing, whine and well, end up with lots of drama and stuff...
Please try to be tolerant. Most are kids and those that aren't are certainly acting like it. :P They are trying to get you angry, and trying to push your buttons. It is the "thing" to do these days.
So try to ignore them, or channel the subject in a different direction if possible (doesn't always work, but please try.)
Only mute players when they are truly disrupting global with the "drama." If it's getting nasty then a mute is needed if they won't stop otherwise, but please try not to mute them. Usually if ignored they will quit.
If you don't respond, then get bored. *laughing out loud!*
"Overmodding" causes more problems than it solves. The players start hating the mods because they can't do anything, and then they really start misbehaving.
I'm not talking about the serious drama, or the trouble maker who is totally nasty and disrupting the server. This is pertaining to those who are just "fussing" and being obnoxious. Just let them be. If it bothers others they can mute that player. :D
