If I can get enough community support then I may have a change of mind...

but I need to be sure I will not be revisited by the same situation of trolling by people who want to vent in the chat and make the community look bad.

I'm sorry to hear about this...
I mean, seriously people... Have some respect for Frook. This is HIS site, and he's been nice enough to let us all spend our free time here. I don't know what happened, but it must have been something huge and something serious... It's pretty sad that the people who caused this felt the need to cause so much unnecessary trouble for the site.
You guys need to think about what you've done and the damage you've caused and stop being self centered little brats. The world doesn't revolve around you... Think about everyone else.
The problem with the world today is that people are self centered and think the world owes them something.

I hope I do not need my resignation letter. *sigh*
Everyone else is growing up around me, while I'm just staying behind. Evolution sucks man.

Looks like the bad apple spoiled the bunch. I mean, it really is a shame. I have contributed to drama, I will not deny that...but to this extent? Come on, people. Either respect this place, or leave. Simple as that.

I hope you do.
There are plenty of people who are devoted to you and your site Frook... It's just a shame that there are also so many people who are just complete fools who want nothing more than to ruin the good that others have.
Next go around, we should probably have a bit stricter rules in Room 1, and more "lax" rules in "F room" or whatever it was...
I hope things can sort themselves out and the guilty party apologizes and grows up.

Seriously. I don't know how much effort Frook made to build this site up, but I'm pretty happy he did or I wouldn't have met the best people here. People should respect Frook more and be nice that he gave us this site to spend our free time on, like Angel said.
I can't say I was fine. I was never fine to begin with.

Like hello. We need rules. Relaxed chat just doesn't work. Lol. Just saying.

Practically every level of strictness possible has been tried at some time or another on FWG. From Hito's much stricter rules to the recent, extremely lax rules, none have all out prevented the drama or the trolls and it's unlikely that they ever would.

Drama and the chat kind of go hand in hand.. Running a community, it's going to happen. Frook just doesn't want to deal with that.

Things just seemed better when moderators actually had a purpose.

They cracked down on the rules. The other users either followed the rules or they got banned.

Having a completely relaxed chat for rooms that aren't the "f" room,( which I'm not even sure why that's a thing anyway. As if we need a room for everyone to cuss and bad mouth people in) just doesn't work very well. In my opinion, at least. We will always have trolls and drama but at least when Hito was around, everything was more under control. I'm not even sure half the moderators know what is acceptable in a chat box anymore, so how are they to enforce a nice chat box?
