I started playing Runescape back in 2003 when having 30,000 people online at the same time was a big deal. The community was much smaller then and a lot friendlier. I decided to give the game a go the other day. I'm a member with full zamorak armor so I usually attract a couple of people asking me to give it to them or something. I was at the coal mines and had 1 rock that I would mine over and over. There were a couple of other guys there and we all agreed to just let me have that one rock. Another guy showed up not too long after and asked me to sell him my armor. I politely said no and he decided to follow me aroudn for the next 2 hours and take every piece of coal I tried to mine. He also called me a "noob" and told me how big of a jerk I was.
Instances like this happen over and over in this game. Runescape really isn't that bad of a game but the community definately ruins it.
