I'm back! Who wants to kill me?
So, since I'm back and I'm in no games, let's start one. Who wants to welcome me back from surgery by defeating me? I propose a classic game, PPSC, 24-hour phases, and a stake of about 25 D. Who's in?

Yeah....I've changed my view. He's a Patriot. Yes, he committed an illegal act...but sometimes a good man must break the law to do the right thing. Had he worked for Enron, he'd be a hero, a -, and the government would protect him. But when you are blowing the whistle on the government...

Should sexual harassment of women in online games have real world consequences?
ILN (100 D)
07 Jun 14 UTC
Although the stream on aljazeera is a hipster hub that sucks major ass, this story was interesting.

I found though that throughout my hundreds of hours spent playing games like CS:GO, I never came upon it. Instead, I found the guys usually tried sucking up to a female player as soon as they used the mic.

Sexual harassment in any public forum is disgusting and unacceptable behaviour.

The sexual harassment of a woman playing a massively multiplayer online game is therefore disgusting and unacceptable behaviour - just as it would be if she was subject to abuse in the street, at a sports game, in a nightclub, or wherever.

The real world consequence it should have, I'd say, would be the male player responsible for the harassment to lose his account and be unable to access the game, at least.

Jamie, as the video said, it's very different from the real world as people can harass under cover of anonymity.

So....... you think it's ok for me to sexually harass people in real life as long as I'm wearing a very convincing disguise?

Jamiet99uk (202 D)

I agree with you. It's a situation that's harder to police, perhaps. But the abuse is still disgusting and unacceptable.

The "anonymity" is fake anyway. And I think that it is unacceptable behaviour aswell and should have repercussions. How those should look like... I don't know.

Bah, the same rule applies in MMOs as applies anywhere else on the internet. Don't give out any information to anybody you don't trust to not use it against you. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: there's no such thing as being harrassed by a stranger online. Using your mute function solves 99% of possible problems. But people don't want to "mute." People want the other guy to "shut up." People want to "win." And its that desire to "win" that gets them burned.

Face it, most of you, woman, man, or otherwise, aren't clever enough to "win" if you go up against your typical nasty, intelligent, anonymous 20something.

Mute the douchebag and get on with your life, you pathetic hoser.

I have to say, I don't think it should have real life consequences. Little kids swear at everyone online, more then even the 20 somethings. It's part of the online game setup. If gaming companies want to restrict all types of swearing and rude behavior then fine. But saying specifically that you shouldn't do it to women is just sexist. Either enforce etiquette for everyone or no one.

jmo - liberalism and the bigotry of low expectations rears it's ugly head again. Basically the argument is this: Men are strong, and they are able to handle on-line insults, swearing, etc. But ohhhhh....those poor weak womyns!!! Dear me oh my!!! They can't handle the same things boys can handle, can't defend themselves or dish it back out....so we need to protect the poor, stupid weak womyns....

I muted all the threads about mapleleaf and it's like all the drama he's causing vanished. Fascinating how well that worked. (I guess I didn't mute this thread. That would be weird muting your own thread though.)

The poo maple
As I was cleaning my mapleleaf, I discovered it was covered in poo. I got it all over my shorts. When I checked if it did happen, I got it all over my hands. I've washed them 3 times and they still smell like maplepoo.

Maplepoo Donations
Since it is quite evident to all that Maplepoo it yet another Canadian that really wishes he weren't, and he has obvious jealousy issue with the US - his desired dwelling place, but that his criminal record (or some such thing) is preventing him from becoming a US citizen, and thus he has taken to rather amusing constant stream of America bashing to try to soothe his saddened soul....let's take up a collection and send old maplepoo the biggest US flag we can find.

Hey gang. Having spent the last week in hospital, I'm back. Hopefully that was the last operation I'll need. Going to need to spend the next few weeks healing, but that'll give me plenty of time to join some games. Thanks very much to abgemacht for sitting my account for the last week.

An Idea for World Games
Most of my recent games have been World, and I've found that once you get 20+ units, the list of orders can become quite unwieldy. Since you develop different "fronts" involving different sets of units, it'd be really cool to be able to arrange my own units to I could keep all of my South American guerrillas separate from my Mongolian hordes (Inner and regular). Would this be simple/worthwhile to incorporate?
