About the attitude change, I've also met some people who would start flattering a person just because he wants favours. That's as bad as the first example, if not worse. Here's a practical example: I don't really "like" or "love" Mynta, I honestly never did. But this didn't meant I should swear at him, or treat him bad. I just mind my own business, and the fact that he is a mod now won't change my oppinion about him.
@Zefie NOT. TRANCE.
Not in the mood to listen to Two Steps From Hell.
