Well, this would go with the friends thread, DB....in terms of drama, zing. Do you see the majority complaining about staffers, cause I don't and I'm one of the most actives at this time.
The few times I've had problems or saw something on this site, I pmed a staffer and they always helped as soon as they could. And I'm pretty sure I pmed a few of the ones you mentioned who don't do much, thus putting a crack in your statement. The ones that come to mind are Len, Sasurai, Sazuka and soldat I think. Those are the ones I can remember that helped me when I pmed them, so they do their job great in my opinion. If I missed any of you, don't feel bad, my memory can be bad at times.
Don't call this a suck-up, I'm just stating the facts and experiences from this noob when it comes to this touchy subject.
