They did...when I was temporary demoted the first time.
I stated that I am having problems getting on the internet from my college apartment and such.
It seems I wasn't too active in participating at HQ discussions, which one of the reasons why I was demoted. =/
I was pretty upset (not as upset as my girlfriend, she thought they were being mean to me. XD), but I got over it quickly since it seemed like a logical thing to do since my activity has been dropping exponentially these days due to offline stuff (life, ect.). I wish somebody reminded me to go to HQ once in awhile, or warned me before the demotion. =/ But oh well sweetie...
Yeppie, sweetie. x3
Actually, I was demoted because I was kinda inactive due to college and bad internet connections and other stuff. But hey, I can focus on school, and browse PC without giving +20 infractions. XD
