Gather around children. How many of you remember a fellow dgzer named SageRhapsody. SageRhapsody was a weeaboo from Canada, but he was a chill person nonetheless. Suddently SageRhapsody has disappeared without a trace. No one knew why he disappeared. This is the tale of SageRhapsody
Once upon a time, on the Duelistgroundz discord. SageRhaposdy was engaging in a Yu-gi-oh! discussion. Sage jokely said, "Hey, I'm gay!". Everyone laughed it and shrugged the joke off. No one took it seriously. But, one person did. That person was Mark. Duelistgroundz has launched a brand new war season with a team draft system. Captains were selected to make their own team. Mark was selected as a captain, he founded a team called "All of The Outs". Mark drafted SageRhaposdy early in the round for unknown reason. There was many clamors on why Mark made that type of pick. But everyone moved on. And so, the war season has began. Serveal weeks into the war season. SageRhaposody was traded to a different team for no reason. It was unexpected. Mark wasn't willing to let SageRhaposody go like that. It was strange, but then everyone assumed that SageRhaposody was too busy with IRL engagment to war. The war season was over. One person on "All of The Outs" that went by the name Morphing Jar made serveal comments about what happened during the war season.
What a strange statement made by Morphing Jar. Kira was on All of The Out along with Sage. Sage didn't needed to be traded in order to get rid of Kira. Other arrangment could have been made. But Morphing Jar commented that Sage was the "glue". If that was the case, then Sage shouldn't have been traded away.
A new war season was starting. Unlike the previous season, a person could make their own team and recruit other to join their team. Instead of being picked as a captain and pick a person from a draft. Sage wanted to make a team of free agent, which was a good thing. However, Sage never went through with this. And Sage left Duelistgroundz without telling anyone why. Fellow DGzers were concerned about Sage leaving, but they assumed that Sage was too busy with IRL engagments. So eventually, DGz moved on.
One day, I got a private message from Ynus. It was a strange question for him.
This was out of the blue, Ynus normally wouldn't care about that. However, he followed up with another strange question. He was asking for my opinion about Mark. It was equally out of the blue. But I responded to him. Then suddenly, he responded with "What if I told you that he was sexually harassing someone? I have tons of screens to prove it". It was strange of Ynus to say that but I believed him. So, he shared some screenshots with me. Warning, they may be disturbing to others.
I read the screenshots, and they were shocking to say so at least. Mark was sexually harassing a person. Not only that, he was bullying that person as well. That person was revealed to be SageRhaposy. There you have it, that is the reason why Sage has disapperaned. He was being sexually harrassed by Mark. He felt uncomfortable. Sage wanted to leave ATO because of Mark.
Satchmo checked in with Sage to confirm it. Sage revealed more informations.
[12:49 AM] Satchmo: yea, like getting preyed on by a mod is not ever ok

[12:51 AM] your boy eatdatcaitsith445: but shit was literally constant 24/7. I'm sure you've seen the walls of text. He'd send like 75 messages in 30 mins while he knew I was at work

[12:54 AM] your boy eatdatcaitsith445: even though he pounced right back the moment i showed activity again trying to make the free-agent team
On top of harrassing and bullying Sage, Mark was stalking him. Sage couldn't work without Mark calling and spamming him endlessly.
The dgz staff would like to applaud Sage for coming forward. Something like this is not tolerated. If anyone would like to step forward and admit that they are being harassed. Please do so, we will help you.
