Let’s try it another way.
Say you’re a woman. And there’s this guy. And he asks you out. And you say no. You tell him, thank you for the compliment, but you’re not looking to date at the moment, or it just isn’t a match for you. So a few hours pass and he asks you out again. And again. And again you say no.And he keeps sending emails to you asking you out. Eight, nine, ten emails a day asking you out. Until you realize he’s asked you out more than 50 times in less than a week.
At what point does this become so harassing, you start thinking about things like restraining orders? And who could honestly blame you if you sought to get one?
Look, there have been a few alliances I have signed on to and said thank you but please stop sending me invites who have been cordial and promised not to do so in the future. They also usually say, if you want to join us in the future, just apply. I thank them, they thank me. We wish each other happy battling.That’s class.
Sending MORE invites after I have actually joined an alliance specifically to ask them to stop inviting me? That’s the very opposite of class.
Now I haven’t been alliance-free for quite some time, and I was curious to see who would invite me if I was on the open market. But why should the onus be on me to disable invites because an alliance is being, shall we say, less than classy? THEY’RE the ones causing the problem. Telling me to disable invites is simply blaming the victim rather than addressing the real cause of the problem.
And it’s a problem Flare can and should be able to address more effectively than it has.
