When the subject of titles comes up you hear almost immediately people saying how they thought the Mythics were bullying the lesser members. I never experienced that, and I've been active for 3 years, perhaps this was more common in the days before 2010? I always took it that this is a website full of gamers, who are passionate people, maybe people think that if someone of a high rank disagrees with them, they are being bullied. So were there actually widespread cases of "I'm better than you because I'm blue."??? (personally I found mythic members to be helpful when seeking advice by posting a question thread, usually the answer in blue was the correct one)
Individuals are, or aren't. To try to say "anyone who met a particular set of conditions on a website is going to be an utter tool" is a foolish assumption.
