Even in online games, I am compelled to act

In 2010, as a coping mechanism, I played an online game, Caesary. Players can join leagues, and most do because there are advantages within the game when in a league. Leagues have different roles with different league powers, such as kicking a player out of the league. I was in a unique league that instead of having permanent leaders, we rotated the leadership position.

One day, I was the league leader and another league player, MalfSemiRt, said some disturbing things about a player, Lenka, in a different league. I was pretty sure I was going to kick him out of our league, but I wanted to make sure I understood everything first. In our league chat room I asked him questions: the entire league could see the following conversation.
