You say 'but then to understand that it's your own fault' and I have to say, what a bunch of bullshit.
Like most other people, I have no problems whenever a THIEF takes anything from anyone, it is their job and profession. But for someone to use skills NOT MEANT to strip people of their items, and to abuse the fact that are the better fighter, is just ridiculous.
It is NOT the victims faults, but the aggressor. People who say what you said are often considered victimizers and bullies, trying to push blame of your actions unto others.
For a change, say this, I am <insert name> and I am bully, I took all your items because I can and because I am better than you. When I hear someone say that, the truth, I will be a happy man.
It would be nice if people here would have a REASON to do what they do, not just 'Cause they Can'. I'm in the same boat as Safovine, I have never stripped nor will strip another player, therefore I can only hope there are honourable people who feel the same way.
