One good thing about being a mule, our linkshell doesn't have any freaking drama.
We used to have drama, but that was back when there were still players on this linkshell. Back before they got all grown up and joined End Game linkshells. Now it's just us mules, and apart from my plans to empower the proletariat, it's blissfully quiet.
Adventurers don't get it this good.
LSMember>> Is the White Mage mad at me?
Reeree>> Is he talking to you?
Reeree>> Then he's not mad at you.
<Reeree> Why the hell are we whispering, anyway?
It comes down to a matter of quality vs quantity. A linkshell can't get much done if you're too picky about who you let in. If there's nobody in it that makes you want to stab out your own eyes, then you probably don't have enough members to do a Garrison.
If you've got enough people, say, to do a Dynamis run, you have to allow for a few complete tards mixed in with the bunch.
<LSTard> OMGWTFBBQ! Y WONT U BUY ME MEH AFG?

<LSDude2> There is too much, let me sum up.
<LSDude2> We already had an event planned for tonight
<LSDude2> It was on the LS message every time you logged in for the last two weeks
<LSDude2> It was on the LS BBS for a month
<LSDude2> We've been talking about it on the LS all day
<LSDude2> You didn't schedule your event at all, anywhere.
<LSDude2> You just asked if people would do it right now, and we're all busy.
<LSDude2> We'd be happy to do your event if you had actually planned it in advance
<LSTard> UR RACIST!
<LSTard> Y WONT NE1 HEWP ME?
<LSDude1> No, seriously, who ARE you?
My linkshell doesn't have any of that. My linkshell, if you don't count Squirt, is completely tard free. Don't you wish you were a mule, too?
