When he mentioned it previously I (and others) argued that actually removing someone for something like that was taking it way too seriously and that if it actually pissed people off they'd avoid playing with you. I still stand by that and am uncertain how I feel about him just going ahead and doing it on his own to be honest.
granted I don't play with y'all anymore, but IMO things were going downhill the minute we started allowing randoms into the clan. TBoB was supposed to be folks that knew each other (or knew someone that knew someone), not any random pub with a barely positive KD that could whore us their founder status. Between the condescension of our "leader" Voltron (directed at myself and others at times) and the massive nut-hug-band-wagoning clique mentality that developed over a few months it really sucked the fun out of things.
but hey, at least I wasn't kicked from the club

I left 261/TBoB due to a lack of belonging. Never felt like part of a group really. Nothing anyone in particular did or didn't due, so no fingers will be pointed. All of the 261 and vortex guys are good peeps. But when Voltron/Da Ghetto Whatever Transformer started getting an attitude with me personally and with other folks that I was noticing, I realized it wasn't something I wanted a part of. I've since removed him from my friend list but I also refuse to play with him and being the leader of TBoB, I figured his presence is vital. No biggie, but since you asked I wanted to be honest.

Bastion you should have a clan invite after we (Dash) talked down Voltron(insert 15 other names here).
Edit: Finally happened with me and MC. That was my longest run on any game since halo 1 though. tried playing a few nights ago and got bored after 10 minutes.

Feeling guilty about this one, guys. I started this landslide yesterday by suggesting we quit entertaining randoms wanting into TBoB. I stand by that. This whole clan thing was never intentional, and had it not been for the Elite features, we wouldn't be TBoB today. I know I owe it to Bastion and Laser for bringing me in to the mix with you guys and it kills me to see him booted like this. I don't like the rage quits, but I enjoy playing with Bastion.
Bastion I guess Ian sent you an invite back in, and I sincerely hope you accept it.
I don't think TBoB should look at itself like a normal clan. We're not. The only reason we became a clan is because Elite allowed us to. That's why I don't like the idea of letting randoms in for the sake of making our clan bigger, and I don't like the idea of booting people that we are actually friends with.
So, Bastion, for what I feel like was my part in all of this, I'm sorry. I do want to keep gaming with you, and all of your flaws. To hell with K/D, W/L, and all the other bs stats. BUT... as a total smarta$$.. I'm going to keep making jokes about it.
We ride together, we die together(some of us more than others)... VRTX crew for life.
When all this first came up about a month ago I flat out told Ian I didn't want to kick people because at that point it stops being a stupid video game and becomes somewhat serious...and thats not what I want. The regulars from here all agreed. I like to mess around with the regulars and have fun (as we've done for literally years now). I feel he takes video games a little too seriously.
MW3 has been a cluster **** from the start. We gotta start fr-fr-freshhhh with Blops2. Dash got an unfair advantage in the prestige race when I got kicked out of my house, we played wayyy to much TDM for my liking, and we lost sight of Search/Demo.
Dash shoulda been the leader of TBoB but oh well, nothing we can do now.
and just remember guys....
