Politeness on

There is something about being anonymous in an internet chatroom that just brings out the worst in some brain dead morons. Like tonight where I was sitting in the game lobby waiting for a 2v2 game to fill.

I guy called BetterThanYou was sorta rude in the chat, so I banned him and he started sending me rude messages. I’m not that touchy, but i can reply in kind.

bnet_chat1 Then his buddy CypressHill joined but the game and the argument. Unfortunately I didn’t get the screenshot to cover the entire dialogue, but I think his words were something like “Noob, I fuck your mother now”.

bnet_chat2 I rarely get this on iccup. On Iccup you have to suffer a ton of defeats, but people are usually polite and friendly. I really don’t get this and I hope that when 2.0 comes around I can perma-ban people on their RealID if they behave like this.


  1. This was on USEast wasn't it. I believe I've seen that guy before.

  2. Whats your iccup rank?

  3. My friend Kvan has sig worth mentioning :)

    Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

  4. AFAIK that's par for the course for Outside of the awesome fan communities like TeamLiquid, GosuGamers, iccup and The Amazon Basin, the Blizzard fanbase is as retarded as any game's (and with regard to rabid fanboyism probably one of the _worst_ out there). really says it all.

  5. lol, that penny arcade thing is hilarious.
