This is just to address a common misconception that happens throughout many-a-roleplay.
A GM is a Game Master. Meaning they are the one designated to be in charge of an RP, usually the creator. (Unless indicated otherwise by the RPs creator on the first post). Co-GMs are allowed, but again, if designated by the creator.
This is their RP, and you're just playing in it. Ultimately, if a GM makes a decision that you don't like, tough cookies. It is rightfully their game, and you are not bound to continue playing it if you feel that you don't like which direction the RP is going. This doesn't mean to whine that you'll quit either. Compromise and Sacrifice make for good RPs.
If you have irreconcilable differences with a GM about the RP, and feel you have to argue about it or ignore what they are saying, then they can rightfully ask you to "leave" the RP. Don't flame, talk about it to the GM, or if there's a bigger issue at hand, get a Staff Member involved. If you've been asked to "leave" an RP and refuse continually, you could be facing a temporary ban. (Or a permanent one if this is a recurring problem).
