People reporting other people for insults

Postby Cullen Bohanon » Wed 8 May 2013 18:16

Ladies and gentlemen,
I'd like to share my opinion with the whole community, including the forum admins.
All do respect, this topic : viewtopic.php?f=91&t=26471 is totally stupid.
Let me explain this to you,
You'll always find kids and stupid people in the video games, it's the way it is, everyone has been dealing with them since the first video game was created.
So.. Reporting people because they're hacking, ruining the game, teamkilling everyone, FINE but for insults? come on guys let's act like adults, are we in second grade or something? reporting to his teacher that Mr.X said I was an asshole?
People troll all the freaking time. I do too, it's a video game, relax!
Look I'm french, how many times did I see someone saying 'french frog', 'french douchebag', 'I hate french people' and even worse. That made me laugh.. So should I report this everytime? Seriously.. don't you have something more important to do?
So, this was the maturity part of my arguments, now let's talk about the impact of this topic on the community.
Reporting people for nothing will just make the community worse and worse. A game where we can't troll anymore? Not a game anymore.
So now everytime I'm gonna say to someone playing like a dick in the other team that he has to get some balls, I'll get reported? Is that it? is that what WG turned to?
Wouaw, congrats men! Way to go!
Shouldn't we rather work on all the bugs and the improvements we still have to do to get the game better, Shouldn't we rather teach the newcomers how to play? Instead of reporting each other and ruining the community?
Think about it.

funny it started out as cheating and tking and now has expanded to insults, racism,chat spam. what next? they said no McCarthyism back at the start of the lack of sportsmanship in EE but now its full blow ss Nazism.

Wow... Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. After you sent me the message on the Wargame chat I thought that you were in on the reporting... So I am sorry for the cold demeanour you may have encountered with me. I had no idea you are against this kind of juvenile, petty community-destruction. Thank you for standing up against this bizarre new policy. I also agree that this game and its community should allow for slight offences such as swearing or minor insults. I cannot count the number of times ALB and EE have frustrated me as they should do any dedicated player who enjoys the game or any green newbie who has had a bad day or wound up with a bad teammate.
Anyway I will go and post my apology on that thread, which I originally respcted; back when it was only relevant to those who commit ridiculous offences like team-killing on a regular basis, with bad intent or for no acceptable reason. Problem is, I don't feel even an ounce of regret; in fact I feel more indignant and shocked at what level this (what I previously was a mainly pleasant one) community can stoop to ("Hapexi" who reported me and other snitches particularly).
I have not sworn on the forums once, I try and remain good-willed in-game and I am very happy and willing to help out new players and only get impatient with people when I feel that they really do deserve it. This is very disheartening, and I do not appreciate such petty and vindicating blacklisting for minor offences like 'spamming' which weren't even part of the rules last I checked...
Again, cheers for the heads up. Almost tempted to make a signature for this.

Btw Derrick I agree, what kind of big brother state is this previously very free and very entertaining (and therefore generally very, very, very good-willed!!!!) community-area becoming?

I despair at this attitude. Because internet is anonymous and everyone is acting like ********, i should too. Everyone trolls, everyone types insults and racism into a chat room. OK, let me ask you this:
would you tell someone he is a such and such over a game of monopoly? If your "friend" started behaving like this while in a nightclub, or other gathering place, would you keep him as your friend?

I can already see this kind of behavior spilling over into the "real world", and i think it is a crying shame. What happened to people being polite and friendly?
Is it no longer required?

Are we really prepared to live in cities where it is OK to curse at strangers and acquaintances?
Let's stop this, at least in our little community, and enjoy each others company for once!

As for free speech and all that, even in liberal and free democracies, it is NOT OK to insult/ defame/ etc your fellow citizens.

I fully understand why people report people who do nothing but throw out insults. I once played a 4V4 in EE where one guy on the opposing team continuesly wrote insults directed towards myself and a buddy of mine. Not only is this incredibly frustrating, it's also childrish. People like that should be banned.

An important part of this particular story is that he had no reason what so ever for insulting me or anyone else. We weren't spamming arty or using any other cheap tactic. He just did it because he thought it was fun as hell. The desire to put a fist in his face was strong indeed. But the internet only allows for so much.

its not a ban from the game, the topic pointed is just a pilory with no consequences ingame, that's not like if they were banned ingame, so stop useless complain about this and just don't troll or worst in the chat whereever you are in lobby or in game, thats all.

i really dont want the chat become a trash like it does at some rare moment (hopefully)
and i see no excuse why people should be allow to free insult, or mess up the chat and make it unusable for other people.

Folk, this thread is for reporting unsportsmanlike behavior, nothing more.

for a group of grown up [just guessing] you guys act like little whiny 12 years olds the same ones you[just guessing] don't like. you must have the thinnest skin to not be able to handle insults typed over you monitor to have to cry on a game forum about another player.

question: when everyone has finished reporting each other and there is nobody left then what :?:
