Considering how Kono tried to deny it, instead of saying he was trolling, I believe you just backed up my claim of him asking. But go ahead and try to call it trolling now.
Besides, wasn't Kono the one who said Stoic doesn't recruit trolls? But he's trolling... so doesn't that mean Stoic is just one big hypocrite factory? KK, good to know Stoic is completely !@# backwards on everything they do and say.
That's not nearly as hypocritical as to what my old guild did that left me guildless now.
