But comparing an INTERNET moderator to a firefighter..that's stretching it a bit..
The profession is an example, regardless of whether your a voulenteer or not, your expect to uphold the same ideals, goals, profesioanlism and honour of someone who does it professionally. Being a voulenteer dosen't excuse you.
On top of that, pranks like this have ill effects on the sport, especially when they last longer than this one did. Has anyone wonderd about potential new players being turned away because they think the sport is constantly in impending doom, or read something about a retailer being arrested by the RCMP, then forgoet about Airsoft completly? This stuff hurts the sport, and helps only those who laugh at their "little joke".
This is why many people have their "panties in a knot" about the pranks like this that happen far too often.
