I sent him a message regarding his custom user title about how you should start your day with "wake & bake".

Here is the message:

" Hai there.

I would like to recommend you to remove your custom user title.

Don't get me wrong, I love weed and how it lets you fastforward thru the hard times. I did so myself for 10 years. I can't say I remember it as very fun but that artificial feeling of wellness is very very nice.

The problem with you advocating a daily routine of taking drugs for breakfast is that this forum is frequented by very young people.

I believe that it would be better not to show kids an easy way "out" since life is actually supposed to be hard. Without the hard parts you won't be able to really appreciate the good times.

So please, take my advice and change, at least, your user title.

With kind regards, IshrkI"


If anyone here believes that what I did was unjustified please let me know in this thread.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

@tomrobans I'm assuming, based off reading the title and the message ish sent to genzong, this was a private message to genzong, not kazza.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

He answered with this:
Genzong said:
I actually asked Zax about it a few months ago and he said it wasn't that bad. I would also like to note that it is not a drug but 100% legal for both recreational and medical use, which I am prescribed and use it for. I understand your concern and if it truly offends then I can change it. After all, even my name GenZong stands for General Zong(Bong) which almsot everyone is aware of.
And later added:
Genzong said:
With that being said, I fully respect your opinion on the matter I would like to point out that you are wrong in a few areas. 1) It's not a drug or "easy way out," but a 100% legal recreational activity and proven medicine. For More Information See This Link Here straight from a proven & official government source. Also, I fully agree that marijuana should not be forced upon people that don't wish to consume it, however I do believe everyone has the right to make the choice of wether they wish to try it themselves and have real facts and not false Anti-marijuana propaganda perpetrated by the United States Federal Government. I mean this is no disrespectful way, and I apologize in advance if you do take offense, but I would kindly like to ask that you collect all the factual evidence before hearing everything you are told so to speak.
To which I replied:

I said:
Genzong said:
l1) It's not a drug or "easy way out," but a 100% legal recreational activity and proven medicine.
Do you really believe that it can't be both?

The main thing you seem to have missed here is that one thing not necessarily excludes the other.

There are very many "100% legal recreational activities" and proven medicines that can be abused.

If you believe that THC is a risk free substance you need to see things in a bigger perspective.

I have read more about cannabis than most people, I have been active in pro-cannabis organizations, I f*cking went to Amsterdam to visit High Times Cannabis Cup back in 2008 and I have talked and smoked with more stoners than I can even count. I know what I'm talking about here.

It's a good medicine for your condition, fine. 
But you need to understand that for a person under the age of 20 or so years cannabis can have permanent effects on the brain structure. Not necessarily "bad" effects, but effects non the less.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

Thanks Sun.
And here comes the latest messages:
I said:
Genzong said:
 That I would like to say is false. I started consuming cannabis on a regular basis at the age of 12 and turned out fine. :I It's one of those things that each person needs to find his or her tolerance level for. It's also been proven that the dependency is a psychological state of mind and you cannot actually be "addicted" to it. Like I said, if it truly offends you so much I can change it.
What is "false"?
And are you saying that psychological dependency is not something to take seriously? Addiction is addiction even if it isn't of a physiological nature. Come on.
Nothing truly offends me. I'm asking you kindly to change it because of the negative influence it might have on the younger crowd in the community.

Kantoe said:
Are you really attacking someone over a medicinally legal/legal substance and calling it a drug? Bro, get your facts straight before you attempt that garbage. There is nothing offensive about marijuana so hop off.
No, I'm not attacking anyone. But yes, I do call Marijuana a drug.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drug
And as I told you before, I do have my facts very very straight.
And did I tell you that there was something offensive about marijuana?
He's starting to get a bit hostile now. 
I'm starting to think of just changing it for him and telling him to drop it instead.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

I had problems with kantoe when I banned him on Pokeblock. tbh I have never liked him.

I have never heard that marijuana being legal here where I live. Has he looked into that the stuff is legal in every country in the world? I don't know anything about drug stuff XD

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

(Sorry to butt in)
If Genzong were doing this to me, I would just take affirmative actions like you have said and change it for him, he is going through so much trouble to argue over it instead of just changing it. If he just keeps talking back or changes it back etc. I would give him warning or agreeable punishment until he learns not to argue over something like this...

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

I was just in their TeamSpeak channel, and apparently Kantoe and Genzong think you were offended by these. May want to point that out. ^^

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

Why did Kantoe even get involved? He's a moron. Change Genzong's message if you wish, Ishrk. You'd have my support and no doubt support of the others in this thread. If Kantoe is being a childish little ass, give him a warning and tell him to mind his own business. Weed is illegal in many countries, and as you said, isn't a good thing for developing minds to be experiencing.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

I have messaged Genzong and removed his user title myself. I have also removed kantoe's signature and avatar. Should either of them continue further, feel free to ban their forum accounts.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

I went on the teamspeak to try to explain why they needed to take the weed stuff off of craftblock. Long story short; They called me ignorant 20 times and then Kantoe told me to go fuck myself.

Edit:
I need to go to bed now.
I wont be able to work on this issue until in 20 hours from now, so if anything needs to be addressed fast, feel free to chip in.

Thanks for all the support guys.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

In response to my message:
GenZong said:
Once again I would like to make note of several things. One. It is perfectly legal. See This Link For More Information. 2) It is not a drug and you are simply unInformed and biased on the matter, the same as Ishki. Also, I would like to point out the United States Constitution which protects my free speech from those that would seek to oppose it with their false beliefs and propaganda fueled campaigns such as you are doing.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

I've never liked Genzong. Or kantoe, for that matter. Ignorant assholes who respect only their own opinion. They've both had a run me on TeamSpeak & in game.

In conclusion, they're assbutts who probably will continue with this and end up slapped with a warning/ ban.

I'll make the popcorn.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

Hope he lives in Colorado, because that's not the case for other states... lol

I think he believes that the internet has the same regulations as Colorado or some shit... Or he thinks the internet is whatever he says it is. He just needs to get in his head that, like schools preventing firearms, we have regulations too. I think we need to create a thread explaining the rules and regulations of the forums.

RE: Genzong and his favorite drug.

My response to GenZong.

Dude, take a chill pill. We asked you to remove it, simple as that. Please drop the discussion. We are not "stifling your freedom of speech." I don't honestly care that it's legal in Colorado. It is not legal in the majority of the country. And, quite frankly, it doesn't matter. I don't think you understand the impact the actions of others can have on our community. As a community that accepts individuals of all ages, there are certain things we just can't allow on our site. Drugs (regardless of whether you classify marijuana as a drug), pornography, high levels of vulgar language, and other illegal material (piracy, emulation, etc.) can get our site in trouble and shut down. Much of our hosting is paid for by Google adsense. Google, at any given moment, can choose to not allow us to profit from Google ads due to our site containing a high volume of these such materials.

As I have stated prior, we're looking out for our community, our servers, and doing what's best to keep our site and entire operation safe. It's not a personal attack on you. It's not an attack on marijuana. We're not trying to stifle your freedom of speech or whatever. We understand you feel quite strongly about this whole thing. That's fine. If you don't mind, please drop the subject. We've asked nicely, and are simply looking out for the community and doing what's best to keep our servers and site running. Thank you.
