(Disclaimer: The views exprssed in this post pertain to the game EvE Online and not necessarily real life. The OP shall not be held responsible for any hurt feelings or sandy vaginas resulting from the viewing of this topic.)

I dunno about anyone else but I've noticed the word "cyberbullying" getting thrown around on these forums lately and I for one think it's a flippin disgrace that such weakness is tolerated within the EvE community. Whatever happened to the days when whiners who whined about the big bad griefers were promptly ridiculed and told to HTFU?

But T-Bone, cyberbullying is an important issue, it hurts people's feelings and makes them depressed, we should be considerate of each other and treat each other ethically. Bulls**t, this is exactly the kind of thinking that creeps into a society when the weak are allowed a voice and social darwinism is ignored. If someone smites you on the cheek, you don't offer them the other, you shove a 1400mm Howizter down their throat and make them regret they ever undocked. Screw feelings, this is a game about predators and prey, if one doesn't like being prey learn to be a predator, if someone can't manage that they should take their ass back to Azeroth where it belongs.

(I apologize for the badly formatted wording, when I wrote this it was 3am and I was pretty mittanied off some raw cask Blackadder, I've since attempted to format it for easier viewing.Cool)

Cyberbullying = RL and has absolutely nothing to do with EVE or its game play.

Short and sweet.

I guess now I have to go back to that other topic and delete my post about how anyone can make good sounding words to support any idea.

What is this illiterate filth and why did you feel the need to put a disclaimer before the mental vomit you just posted? No one is going to read that block of dreck anyway.

You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world.

So....I assume you're using an online game to compensate for your lack of physical prowess when all those mean old knuckle draggers kept stealing your lunch money? Oh. It's EVE! We're supposed to agree with you! So...you typed the OP on an invisible keyboard and some fairy makes it come out in our browsers?? Interesting. What would be more interesting is learning what those little voices in your head are telling you.

We must accommodate the idiocracy.

You greatly over estimate my ability to withstand stupidity if you think I read past the first line of that post.

I did (despite the apparent wall-of-text), and I find the text pretty much spot on. So... Harden the **** up or shut up and get out.

Unfortunately, EVE Online has communication channels - channels which can be used to verbally harass people to the point where one would consider it 'bullying'. This has nothing to do with the game, that type of harassment is illegal and against the EULA that you agreed to when you signed up for EVE. In my opinion, CCP should have no tolerance for even minor cases of cyber bullying, and should quickly enforce permanent bans on the person (not the account) doing the bullying.

Back in World War II there was this German Dude with a small moustache who pretty much proclaimed the same sort of things - but in real life.

He did not die well.

Spot on my behind.

Most cases of cyber bullying are unjustified whining, yes. But there's always some real cases among them, and the OP is only ranting, there's no brainpower engaged behind this wall of text.

With that logic, next time he's going to say that death threats are fine, players just need to harden...
