Personally, I prefer the events to be hosted by Snar, Nolan, NoOne, and I. I believe that SMT Members know what can work in events, and what will not. However, we do ask staff to help at certain times but for now my personal advice would be to keep it to SMT.
I'm just going to leave this message here, many things happened behind the scenes that were not brought up. You should not only go to someone's side out of pity, but you should go to them with confidence, in your case you felt pity for the individual. My personal advice for you is to learn from this, judge both sides equally before coming to a decision.
