I personally haven't had any experiences in regards to those with authority, but I do often see people being crucified for the silliest little thing or opinion, and I see this on both factions. A lot of RPers I know have left WS because they were victims of this, or they have witnessed such behavior themselves and are tired of feeling like they have to walk on eggshells. This is the number one criticism I get when I talk to former WS RPers.
Guys, we're playing virtual Barbie. Calm down. Jumping on peoples' backs about their RP preferences or IC/OOC opinions on something, anything, to the point that they leave the game does not make you a dispenser of justice, but a -bully-. You become the very thing you are trying to prevent.
