I will tell you what I believe. You had no intention of returning the rank in the first place. I do not know why you wanted to do all this, you probably wanted to show some fake professionalism. You could very easily start by saying NO, yet you just preferred to waste a few more hours of my time for for stupid silly formalities. I'm not going to spend one more week of my life on a server that prevents players from using basic game functions, avoids mentioning such an "important" rule as you say at the most obvious place for Minecraft server.
I'm sorry for $ 13 Not because I gave it to a minecraft server but because I gave it to a server that does not deserve my help since it does not help me.
After all this I'm not even sure if I want my rank. What I definitely want is to influence you and change your treatment to the players in order not to get someone else in my place.
I think the formal speach says that I should thank you for your time.
Well... I DON'T!!!
