Except the player's version of the DM being a gentleman is working with less than 1/10 of his tools for increasingly inane reasons. It's the reason I put "Gentleman's Agreement" in quotes like this. Every time it's been cited in threads I read is little more than a tool to bully the DM into exactly one
type of game. If it was actually about "being gentlemen" it wouldn't be used as a weapon AGAINST THE DAMN DM
