The following review is the opinion of the review's author [Foxtai] and in no way represents the opinions of this website or its staff.

I have been a player on EoM for over a decade and I have had fun for
those many years, and have made quite a few friends over the decade as
well.. but I am not writing this review not as a way of promoting this
mud. It is a warning to players who would seek to play on this mud.
There is a staffer who is in control of the mud now known as Vella,
who has been abusing their power to make my time on there a living
hell, accusing me of false crimes and constantly slaying me on the
spot for the smallest things, and even things I haven't even done,
under the false proclaimation that I was arrogant and disrespectful.
She has even went as far as publicly slandering me on the gossip
channel for everyone to see, adding on harassment, humiliation,
ruining my reputation, and being an absolute control freak. This mud
was once fun and offered a free environment for people to have said
fun, but Vella has completely ruined it for me and I would not want
her to ruin it for anyone else. No matter what I do, she always finds
a reason to make my time there absolute punishment.

Any normal person would have likely left by now, but I've been
playing on this mud for over a decade.. and I am sure most people know
how hard it is to leave a mud that you've been playing on for quite a
long time.

The user Foxtai, has had trouble with administration in the past
*there is a post in 2008 reflecting that* Users encounters with
administration are not atypical. Time spent on the mud, is no excuse
for poor user behavior. Thank you, Vella - Administrator of Edge Of
Midnight.

Just a quick little update. It seems my review exposing Vella's
abusive behavior has earned me a 24 hour ban from the mud, followed by
a possible 2 month ban pending from what I have heard. In light of
this, I will not be returning to this mud until things turn around for
the better, or at least until Vella is removed since she will likely
continue this abusive behavior until something is done, as she
believes she is above the rules that she was put into place to
enforce.

If you do wish to play on this mud, play at your own risk.

I would like to start this off by stating, I am not a player on this
mud, nor staff. My involvement here, is a result of having my eyes
assaulted by having read this. It is my view, that the original post
is not a review at all, but a crybaby response to having ran into
conflict with the MUDs staff. I feel this is NOT the place for this
post, this sounds like an internal matter for EoM to deal with. Your
an Adult OP, you need to grow up, and gain some integrity. If you
can't do as your told by the owners and operators of a service,
don't use it. It's not like you pay for it, or have any right to use
it. As pointed out by the staff member, this user seems to have a
history *10 years it seems* of conflict with the ownership and staff
of this mud. That is the majority of the time they played, I'd say
the ownership and operators of this mud have been very accepting if
this is the case. The responses I have read from the staff member
accused, here on TMC, have been professional, so I really do question
the original posts validity. I don't want this to turn into a novel,
but in conclusion: I felt this post needed to be critiqued. I don't
believe it should be taken seriously by any free thinking adult. Thank
you for reading. I won't be reading or responding to comments, I have
said what I need, and I am moving on.

I would like to start out by saying, no.. this is not a crybaby
review. Since you do not play on the MUD, you are forgiven for not
knowing that Vella is a manipulative liar. I have had -no- history of
conflict with the mud over the past 10 years, as my only conflict with
the MUD has been only within the past couple of months with that
person in specific. In fact, you can look back at my previous reviews
of my actually promoting the mud.

''The user Foxtai, has had trouble with administration in the past
*there is a post in 2008 reflecting that* Users encounters with
administration are not atypical. Time spent on the mud, is no excuse

Midnight.''

The only reason I had an issue with administrators (let me point out,
that Vella is the only one in charge of the MUD right now, so she
believes herself be more than one person apparently) is due to her
manipulative behavior and the abusive actions she took towards not
seeking a solution. She even caused a few of the people in which I
brought to the MUD to leave due to the bullcrap she was doing, even
went to the extent of disrespecting my friends whom were trying to
figure what she was doing and why she was acting out in that manner. I
have laid out everything in my review regarding the reason why I would
not be coming back, and why I was banned from the mud. As far as what
I can see from what 'review' she left, it's more deceitful garbage.
Her behavior is disgusting and amoral. It is regretful that no one
holds her accountable for her actions since there is literally no one
there to hold her accountable.

I truly hope karma justifiably bites her in the ass.

Having been actually online at the time Foxtai had their outburst in
a public chat channel in game, I can assure anyone reading this review
that Foxtai was exceedingly rude when Vella put the player in a time
out for breaking rules. Further more, Vella is not the only staff in
game, and the owner of the game has expressed support in Vella's
decisions in this matter.

Without getting into details of what actions Foxtai did that resulted
in the time out and then ban beyond the public outburst in game, I can
say that Foxtai was treated fairly given their behavior. The short of
it is if staff tells you to stop some behavior in a game such as this,
then you stop the behavior and do not try to argue about it on a
public channel.

This game is an adult game and is welcome to many forms of adult
entertainments. But it is ultimately owned by an individual who has
trusted staff members such as Vella, and if they tell you not to do
something then do not do it. The game isn't some dictatorship ran by
Vella, but ya if you break the rules Vella will put you in a time out,
and if you continue to break the rules Vella may ban you.

So Foxtai, sorry you got banned but ultimately, I've little sympathy
for you as you continue to just act out because you were told to stop
doing something and you wanted to play the victim.
