Pay when flaming/badwords

Would you play a game where it's in the contract that everytime you insult someone or talk like a moron you get charged 1$?

 

It's a simple question, but I would personally like that, trolls and flame are everywhere and since people are really against having to use your real life ID in games ( I can understand that ) having strict rules could maybe solve it.

 

I don't know how legal that can be tho.

    Bad words sure, but charging based on someone being a moron would be hard to do, as the person who judges it may himself be a moron. It's a great idea, but utterly impossible to implement.

    Edit: And yes, legally you could not enforce this in virtually every country. (At least ones with access to internet.)

    To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.

    No....just no. I swear like a sailor but thats because i grew up around it, but for flaming sure that would make more sense than for someone who says a word.

    Who decides what the "bad" words are?

    How do you stop the puritans deciding "moist" is a bad word and fining people for discussing the attributes of cupcakes?

    How do you police the guilds private voicechat servers which is where most swearing occurs?

    Where do you draw the line between warranted criticism and trolling?

     

    Simple Answer: Never, and I would actively use negative propaganda anytime such game was mentioned. The truth is I wouldnt have to though. Attach that system to any game and watch that game fail in record time.

    Not a big fan of liberty are you? And why would you want to give a company that kind of control??
  • PoufPouf St-hyacinthe, QCPosts: 341Member

    Liberty is a big word haha. I do not want people to enter my place and eat my food that I worked to get because he is "free" to do so.

     

    So going that way I also hate when someone is flaming you or telling you that you are a "freaking moron" over the internet because he knows he is invincible there.

     

    So yea, I hate how people use "Liberty" everywhere to do as they wish with no goodwill.. I Hate liberty more than anything or also. If there would be camera in every house in the world, Yes i would loose some privacy and it would annoy me as hell. But if it could prefer deaths, rapes or watever It would be something I would accept.

     

    Back on the topic, I was just wondering what kind of thing would stop flamers from flaming that's all.. It's not even personal, i'm rarely the one being flamed at, i'm good in video games, But sometime in games someone die once or twice and the flame already starts.. It is annoying and it breaks a lot of community

    Don't play gamers, that's what EA does.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
