    I find that if someone starts hurling personal insults in a particular thread, then I just move on from that thread. I find that being the bigger person and moving on fixes way more than trying to prove I'm the bigger person.

    I have only ever reported one person the entire time I have been here since 2005. I reported that person for doing some race baiting nonsense and I have no idea if they acted on it I don't think they tell you maybe they do. These forums have changed a lot over the years and I do feel like some people have this attitude if you do not agree with me your a heathen which is sad. I guess that is the way of the world now though we can not just let people be happy and not have to force our ideals down their throat. for the most part I just ignore people who are being rude. As far as Kano goes i thought he added a lot of good stuff to this forum and his burning hate for gamingo was always really entertaining I am sad to see him go if he is gone for good. Wizardry's post are always very entertaining I think he has been criticized for some of his pots but he does hold game developers to a much higher standard and to be honest its kind of refreshing.

    If I can recall didn't Kano work at Trion ? I would imagine for someone who worked at a game studio that basically took the money and ran, there's a deep cut for them seeing all us of enjoying games that aren't Trion, specially when Trion started to fall off as a top developer and publisher.

    Holding onto that bitterness for long time eats at the core and a severe form of depression can take root and lashing out was probably the call of help , the help this forum can't give as most of people posting here are rabid fiends pouncing on any moment of weakness. 

    I hope Kano is doing well  and that he can turn what ever is happening in life around in positive way, because this thread , this single thread is exactly what Kano doesn't need and I beg mmorpg/com to lock it. 

    I have a tear in my eyes for kano's safety and welfare.

    Sigh.  Here we are actually having a somewhat adult conversation with multiple perspectives... and still someone has to try and shut it down.  Amazing

    The worst he would have faced is a short time ban. He got butthurt and chose to delete his account.
    HE did it to HIMSELF. That's called refusing the consequences of one's actions. At least to me.

    I get that his overreaction is his own doing as I said in my first post in this thread. I just find it funny that the person who most likely triggered this whole thing wants to close the thread.

    We are all adults here, editorially speaking, and should be able to post opinions without crossing the border between criticism and personal attacks. Even when this fails people in general could have slightly thicker skins and absorb an insult from time to time, ToS notwithstanding. @Brainy called out toxic snowflakes and hit the nail on the head. It just appears to me that as time marches on there are more and more people that go through life apparently looking for things to be offended by.

    ...  and @Scorchien called Kano a pussy  ... I just don't know what to say ...  
    Some posters you know who you can slog it with while others can be hypersensitive. 

    We also have some people that have admitted to reporting posts that they feel break the rules, so, while two posters may have been slogging it with each other, it was just someone random that reported them.

    In these cases, it's hard to know, so even if you get a ban, the report may not have come from the person you were engaging, but someone else that took it upon themselves to play forum police, or worse yet, it was someone that butthurt by what someone said to them a while back, and has been trolling the forums waiting and looking for a reason to report them to get them banned, and no doubt people are in fact that petty.

    In the end,  yes it comes down the mods, but a lot of times the mods are not paid, moderating a forum is not their day job, it's a side hustle. In a place like this, no doubt it is a side hustle, so, they have penitence limits.

    And as others have, sometimes, people get chummy with the mods, so they can get away with anything, for all we know, some of the posters here might be mods.

    Nature of the beast.

    Makes no difference to me, when a person is hurting, they are hurting regardless. 

    I did report him because he trolling, that was and is the protocol here, or have you forgotten who built those rules ? Give you guess, the person was killed in a car crash in Europe heading to her new elevated job title. Someone I spent countless private message discussing those same rules.

    I've been here for over a decade so don't for one second think I will be some peepod push over cause someone broke the rules. And I'm sincere that I wish kano the best and I do feel sad for him for the tremendous disaster that was Trion's end.


    There's a level of hyprocisy that rising from this thread, and it's sickening.

    I have seen no hypocrisy in this thread at all.  I may disagree with what others are posting but I believe they truly believe what they are typing.  It's actually refreshing to put the cards on the table and have a real open conversation about something we can all have different (though personally held) beliefs on.

    So blanket insult at the thread participants in general calling them  hypocrites. 

    Does that give you immunity to being banned for flaming because you're insulting many and not just one?

    You seem to be all about the forum rules, so how does that work?

    Exactly.  Sure someone can press the report button and make the case you just did.  Claim they were personally offended.  I stand by my earlier post to Kyleran thats it’s more about who you respond to than what you say.  Some would see that line as a “chance to get even” from some prior issue and report it.  Sadly, for all we know maybe someone did already...

    I have to admit I was tempted :)

    But like I've said many times before I only report racists shit and the odd spammbot here and there that makes it through the filters.

    The whole issue of blanket insults to many vs. specific ones is interesting though, isn't it?

    There have been several cases of it in this thread which is why I made my "Festivus" post earlier.

    Great link, I noticed three people on it with perma bans including Lokto, an old EVE acquaintance from back in the day. 

    It also highlights my previous assertion that it was far more common back then to get a perma ban, think they might have had a three strikes in a single year and you are out for good rule, which clearly isn't true today.

    I too remember Taera and worked with her several times to overturn moderation actions on my posts. (My sarcastic humor wasn't always appreciated or understood by one mod in particular.)

    I will not respond to specific posts because what I wrote about earlier in this thread about 'baiting' a certain person here may still be trying to do after reading their last two posts..

    Here's a quick description of how baiting works...

    1. Person 1 writes things that are are so outlandish that it's requires a response because what is being said is so far out of touch with reality that NOT responding goes against the very fabric of our being which is the need to inform and help each other. To leave such unjustified remarks uncorrected is unthinkable to anyone with even a drop of decency.

    2. Person 2 is "baited" when they respond with remarks based heavily on emotion due to the pure madness being spouted by Person 1. Person 2 assumes Person 1 was writing/speaking sincerely because even the most hardened/jaded of us even sometimes want to see/assume the best in people.

    3. Person 1 uses what was a sincere response by Person 2 which may have been harsh/crude as ammunition( a weapon) against them and that was proven in this thread.

    Apparently a certain person here had some long formed 'assumptions' going back many years about Person 2 that they've had for a long time that only came out in the open now AFTER that person was banned. Isn't intentionally baiting someone you have an admitted dislike for some type of forum crime on some forum somewhere? Isn't that the classic definition of "Trolling"?

    Wikipedia - "a troll is a person who starts flame wars or intentionally upsets people on the Internet. This is typically done by posting inflammatory and digressive, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog), with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses and normalizing tangential discussion"

    To those who will say "It's his fault for responding" think for a moment what would happen to online discussion if everyone just stopped responding to everyone for fear of repercussion. The real question is why do people go on the internet if their feelings get hurt by random strangers in discussion forums. Why even inject themselves into a 'discussion' if when a person responds with harsh words they immediately feel like it's their right to take away another person's right to voice their opinion.

    Also want to point out that many years ago Old Kano and I had a 'discussion' that carried on for a few days or possibly a week about Trove. During that time not once did he insult me because I backed up everything I was saying with video proof. Now think about what was being discussed about Magic Legends and the video proof was all over Twitch with Streamers who are even on this site saying what he was saying.

    Some folks aren't getting an important point. There are rules to everything in life, both written and sometimes unwritten but understood by any reasonable person.

    Break those rules and you may have to face whatever consequences are permitted and yes, the punishments may not always be consistent or evenly enforced.

    So it's really quite simple, follow the rules, being careful to bend but never break them and it's very unlikely you'll catch a ban, at least not on this site.

    Also a fact, it doesn't matter if you agree with this policy, or why people might use it to get others removed, just like in FFA PVP if the providers allow something to be used, it's all just part of the gameplay.

    Now, over on the Pantheon reddit I caught a three month ban for a first time offense.

    They didn't specifically point out exactly what the offending text was, but the rule cited included several factors including a catch all at the end, "for being an asshole."

    Yeah, that had to be it, good thing there's no such rule here or I'd have been gone years ago. (With a lot of good company)

    Cheers

    We, or at least I, get what you are saying.  But what I am saying is that WE ultimately have control over what we report.  My neighbor (in real life) has pool parties frequently. They play music, have kids jumping in the water or on a trampoline until very late sometimes. Heck it was past midnight once.   I could be “that guy” and report them... but in reality it’s a minor inconvenience so why do it?

    That's how I look at this stuff.   I see it as one giant community and that community is diminished each time someone is silenced.  Even the crazy ones ;)

    Thats my opinion, I didn't force it on anyone else, unlike others poster who forced and demanded that Magic: Legends must be bad, because they said so. If you can't or won''t see that, then that is on you, not me.

    and on that note, have a great life.

    Some folks aren't getting an important point. There are rules to everything in life, both written and sometimes unwritten but understood by any reasonable person.

    Break those rules and you may have to face whatever consequences are permitted and yes, the punishments may not always be consistent or evenly enforced.

    So it's really quite simple, follow the rules, being careful to bend but never break them and it's very unlikely you'll catch a ban, at least not on this site.

    Also a fact, it doesn't matter if you agree with this policy, or why people might use it to get others removed, just like in FFA PVP if the providers allow something to be used, it's all just part of the gameplay.

    Now, over on the Pantheon reddit I caught a three month ban for a first time offense.

    They didn't specifically point out exactly what the offending text was, but the rule cited included several factors including a catch all at the end, "for being an asshole."

    Yeah, that had to be it, good thing there's no such rule here or I'd have been gone years ago. (With a lot of good company)




    You just told me in another thread that you "play both sides" so get over trying to be 'everybody's man' for dem sweet forum points.
    Well no, this wasn't an example of me playing both sides, more an explanation of how the tools of forum PVP might be wielded and avoided.

    But I gave you an awesome for remembering what I said, something I often fail to recall.

    Imagine standing in the street with a sign that say "fuck the your game" and then to start hitting cars in traffic and smashing headlights , ripping antennas off, jumping on the hood...... imagine those same sign holding people cry when they get runover. 

    I follow the rules the best I can, and expect them to followed by others. if that is to much toi ask, maybe the lot of you all should go back to WoW in my opinion  


    OK.  That is a very bad example.   The example here would be:  Imagine someone standing off to the side with a sign and I have to meaningfully step over to read it.  On that sign it says "F Game___".   It's also an electronic sign and I have a clicker in my pocket that allows me to just never see that sign.

    That is a closer analogy.   Certainly nothing even close to the rest of your suggestion about running people over or causing physical damage in a riot situation.

    As for your last sentence which I bolded.  I guarantee that if I reported that it would get actioned.  That is clearly antagonistic baiting/trolling.  I would never hit that button, but you should understand that exactly what you typed there is clearly actionable by the letter of the rules.  To not be a hypocrite one could almost suggest it would be right for you to self report :)
